Gold Trail Grange and Coloma-Lotus Community Hall

The Gold Trail Grange and Coloma-Lotus Community Hall encourages families and neighbors to band together to promote the economic and civic well-being of the community and agriculture.  We are committed to fostering education and promoting social events - including festive live music and dance - to help build community in the Coloma-Lotus Valley. 

Potluck Socials are at 5:30pm on the fourth (sometimes 3rd) Sunday of the month. They will resume next September. Everyone is welcome. Bring a dish to share, a beverage if you like, and your own place setting if you can.

Business meetings are 7pm the second Wednesday of the month. Please come to share your ideas of Grange activities and building maintenance. They will resume next September.

Happy 50th Anniversary to Tim and Vickie Longo!

The Gold Trail Grange / Coloma-Lotus Community Hall was delighted to host the 50th anniversary of long term community members and Grange volunteers Tim and Vickie Longo! Friends and family came from near and far, and the stories of their love and support to so many in the entire county left most eyes moist in appreciation.

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.
