The 2022 Fourth of July Parade Grand Marshal will be Chris Cimino.
By News Desk
Chris came to Sierra Madre when he was two years old. After growing up in town and running the streets, as young people do, at eighteen, he started work for the City of Sierra Madre on the weed abatement crew. He continued to work for the City in a number of capacities until the present where he erves as the Director of Public Works.
Throughout those years Chris was in integral part of community projects like new water reservoirs through the City, the rebuilding of the City pool, Recreation Center, and sport fields, and the most recently completed upgrade of Kersting Court. Over the years, Chris has assisted the residents in a number of ways, both in his role with the City but also as a volunteer with the Sierra Madre Pioneer Cemetery, Madre Little League, Pony Colt, Girls Softball and St. Rita’s. Chris and his wife Pam settled in Sierra Madre and raised three children, adults now, and truly live up to the motto of the community spirit that is Sierra Madre.
Dan Bell and Carol Canterbury have been selected as “Hometown Heroes”:
Dan was born and raised in Sierra Madre, the grandson of the Canyon’s very own Mary of Mary’s Market. Dan worked at Taylors and Happy’s Liquor, and eventually at the Recreation Center running youth activities and other community service programs. Finding a calling in Public Service Dan has gone on to work for several municipalities including Monrovia, Glendale and now the City of Ontario. But Dan never wavered far from home, still staying actively involved in his town of Sierra Madre.
Carol exemplifies the love, energy, uniqueness, and spirit of the community! For every city-wide event, there is Carol! Always ready to lend a helping hand, a ride, a tour in her golf cart, or a smile, Carol has dedicated her time and heart to the Winter Village, the Wisteria Festival, and the Firecracker fun-run. Daily, you can find her on Facebook promoting Sierra Madre businesses, events, and her fellow residents. There is nobody that doesn’t know Carol.
