Volunteers & Clubs

The grounds of the Original Gold Rush Colony are a permanent home for two clubs. It is also a preferred venue as an irregular meeting place. Without Volunteers any cultural place of significance would not be able to survive financially. The heart and soul and time these individuals give to the Colony help to keep it alive.
