The website has been in continuous operation since August 1, 1995, making it one of the longest-running community websites in the world. In 2003, the South Fork of the American River section of the site was split off to form the basis of The American River web site. and The American River are joint projects of the Coloma-Lotus Chamber of Commerce and Donna McMaster (formerly doing business as Coloma Communications). Thanks to all the photographers and those who contributed content to the site! was a finalist for The Dotties (Sacramento Web Awards) in both 1999 and 2006. The Dottie Awards ended their program in 2008; otherwise we’d be going for it again!
