The Sierra Madre Civic Club is comprised of about 100 local and area women who come together to promote unity and good fellowship, and to strive toward civic, philanthropic, and youth welfare advancement. During the year, Civic Club raises monies which, in late Spring of each year, are donated to local philanthropic causes and are also awarded in the form of grants to local exceptional high school seniors.
