On the night of August 30th, a fire broke out in the community center. Several different groups used the community center, including a seniors group and Theatre in the Mountains. The Santa Cruz and Santa Clara County sheriff's offices shared a substation. Loma Prieta Elementary and CT English Middle School also used a big portion of the building for their music and art classes.

The fire destroyed the community center room, kitchen, sheriff's substation, and more. It will take months to restore the space; but we all know that money will be needed. The music and art room were lost, including musical instruments, art supplies and more. The kids sports uniforms were stored in that building - those are gone. Theatre has lost all their materials.
