The Mount Wilson Trail Race is a historic community event in Sierra Madre and is celebrating it’s 105th anniversary and 47th running in 2013. Eight years ago a Kids’ Fun Run was added to the event with great success with each year exceeding the previous.
The City of Sierra Madre Community Services Department and the Senior Community Commission are happy to announce that Joan Crow has been selected as the Older American of the Year for Sierra Madre.
The 2013 Mount Wilson Trail Race marks the 105th anniversary and 47th running of the 2nd oldest trail race in California! The sold-out race will take off Saturday, May 25 at 7:30 am. If you are not running the race there is still plenty to enjoy in Kersting Court including vendor booths, the Beer Garden, MWTR souvenirs and the Kids’ Fun Run.
Got a minute? The folks who run Sierra Madre's two local TV stations - that's right, Sierra Madre has two local TV stations - need your opinion on what you like to watch and how you watch it so they can make this local resource more fun and relevant to your lifestyle. Sierra Madre TV Survey

Prepare for a Medical Emergency - File of Life Packets Available
Medical emergencies are almost always stressful for the patient and everyone in the patient’s household. The time to assemble important medical information is before the medical emergency occurs rather than during the actual medical crisis. Medical information assembled in a period of calm is likely to be more accurate and more thorough than information assembled in a moment of crisis.
The File of Life program enables Sierra Madre residents to compile important medical information into one complete packet and make it available to the local paramedics in case of a medical emergency. The information is stored in a plastic envelope in the resident’s refrigerator, and a decal on the resident’s front window alerts EMS personnel that the information is available on the premises.
File of Life Packets, made possible by the Senior Community Commission, can be obtained free of charge at the Hart Park House Senior Center or Sierra Madre Fire Department. Instructions for completing the packet will be provided upon pick up. For more information, please call the Hart Park House Senior Center at 626.355.7394.
