In the uncommonly beautiful setting of Coloma and Lotus, homes are sparse...
Neighborhoods in the valley are defined mostly by geographical features like the river and the mountains. Some residents have been here for generations dating back to the gold rush and others are new transplants from the area around the country and the globe. All are attached to the valley because of the river and the beauty of the rolling hills.
The good news is that, like in many rural areas, people are brought together, both informally and in organizations, by common interests and shared goals. If you really want to find out what’s happening in the valley, drop into the Coloma Post Office, Coloma Feed & Hardware, Lotus Pub, Sierra Rizing Bakery, Argonaut…the list is a long one! Looking for posted notices? You’ll find the best bulletin boards at Sutter Center Market, Sierra Rizing, and the feed store.
Online, you can pick up the news and share it with others through the Coloma-Lotus News (CLnews) mailing list. And if you’re looking to share with like-minded people, check out Coloma and Lotus’ local organizations and volunteer opportunities.
