Grand Marshall - Eileen DunnRAYMOND - Eileen Dunn, long time resident and active member of the community, has been named Grand Marshall for the 28th Annual Raymond Parade.

In 1960, Joe and Eileen packed up their five kids, left Los Angeles and headed out to Oregon to find a quiet, safe place to raise their kids. When they stopped in Madera to say goodbye to Joe's parents, they heard the Raymond Granite Quarry was hiring. That was 54 years ago, and they have never left.

Volunteers Needed At The Rodeo Grounds

Written by Susanne Waite

CJ Smith  Delaney Smith - photo courtesy Susanne WaiteCOARSEGOLD - 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.
