Welcome to the DFCC!
I am reaching out to anyone who attended the Dutch Flat parade on July 4th that might have a picture I can use in the next edition of the Community newspaper of all the mayoral candidates together as well as the Grand Marshall, Shelley Willsmore. If you have one, or know someone who has, and agree to having it published (with photographer acknowledgement, of course), I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you for your help

The Dutch Flat Community Center is located at 933 Stockton Street in Dutch Flat, California. The Center, originally called the Dutch Flat Community Club, was established in 1952 to provide a range of services to the small communities of Dutch Flat, Alta, Gold Run, and nearby area residents, along U.S. Interstate 80 in Placer County. The Center is managed by a seven-member Board of Directors, elected to one-year terms by the Center members.
The Center is supported mainly by annual memberships. Membership is open to residents or landowners in the area from Alpine Meadows to Emigrant Gap. Associate membership is open to anyone, however, and the Center has many members who live far from Dutch Flat. Associate members may not vote in Center elections or serve on the Board.
In the early 2000s, the Community Club became the Community Center, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to the DFCC are fully tax-deductible, less the value of any consideration received for a donation, like a ticket or a meal.
Most of the Center's activities and events occur in the Dutch Flat Community Center, formerly the Dutch Flat Grammar School. The building was built in 1898, and the last class graduated from the school in 1962. After 1962, Dutch Flat children began attending elementary school in Alta.
Through the efforts of Eleanor Bridges, Janet Fonseca and other founding members, the Center was able to purchase the school building from the Alta/Dutch Flat School District in 1964. The Center maintains the building, and leases the surrounding property to Placer County. The County's Park and Recreation Department maintains the building grounds, as part of the county's recreation program.
We encourage you to visit Dutch Flat and the surrounding area, a beautiful mountain region rich in Gold Rush era history. Click here for further information on Dutch Flat's history, and here for information about the Golden Drift Museum, in Dutch Flat.
