Volunteers Needed At The Rodeo Grounds

Written by Susanne Waite

COARSEGOLD – I would love to thank those on the Coarsegold Rodeo Committee who volunteer, giving their heart and soul to make this annual event safe, enjoyable and a whole lotta fun for our community!

We’ve had so many step up to help make this event something special over the past 60 years – especially those who have been long time volunteers who tirelessly and quietly, work for the entire 12 months a year to make the rodeo magic happen for 3 days every year.

You know what they say, “It takes a Village!” Well, it takes quite a dedicated gang of cowboys and gals here in Coarsegold to keep this old fashioned, family oriented rodeo tradition alive.

We need to get our bleachers finished and in good shape so those attending don’t wind up with UNWANTED souvenirs! ;)

All proceeds of the Coarsegold Rodeo Association (CRA) go to Eastern Madera County Youth for agricultural and educational projects (ie., FFA, 4-H, etc.) via individual grants to the youth. CRA is a non-profit organization (501c3).
