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.
