About us


Branch 270 Coldwater first received its Charter in January of 1935.  You may read about the various steps in the development of the branch under Our History on this site.  Today, the Coldwater Branch has a membership of 316 Ordinary, Associate, Affiliate, and Life Members, as well as a Ladies' Auxiliary consisting of 42 members.  Although the team that keeps the branch running smoothly throughout the year includes dozens of dedicated volunteers, a small group of members coordinates the branch's projects and activities from day-to-day.  Here are the members of the 2024 Branch Executive and Committee Chairpersons:
