The state issued a Stay Home Order on March 19th that is still in effect without a known expiration. The events scheduled on the April calendar are non-essential per the California Department of Public Health Guidance for gathering. Accordingly, the hall  is closed for the month of April or until the Stay Home order is lifted if that occurs first.

Please stay safe, practice social distancing and take protective measures. Also, check in on your neighbors, friends, loved ones, and anyone who can use a friendly phone call in this time of isolation. We look forward to gathering again when it is safe to do so.

Birthday party at the Gold Trail Grange
The hall, built in 1926 as a community gathering place, is a venue for a wide variety of presentations and forums. Groups and individuals may rent the building, which has hosted everything from exercise classes to wedding receptions, memorials and birthdays.

Each month the Gold Trail Grange has a business meeting and also sponsors community gatherings on a vast range of topics, from meteorites and native plants to League of Women Voters election information and Coloma history. Periodically, the Grange sponsors dances, with live music one of the attractions. The dances are part of a long-standing tradition; early-day Grange treasury reports enumerated expenses for food, orchestras and even floor wax. At one time the “Gold Pannies,” a can-can group made up of local women, entertained at fundraisers.

The Grange is located along the beautiful South Fork of the American River that roars or meanders through the heart of the Coloma Lotus Valley, depending on the season.
