OCC, water, Hart Park and a fire

Orange Coast College will open an exhibit about its history. A reception and dedication will be held Feb. 2, 5-9pm in OCC's new Doyle Arts Pavilion. This event will kick off the school's 20-month-long 60th Anniversary Celebration. (Apparantly taking their cue from Disneyland's 2-year 50th anniversary celebration.) For information or reservations, call (714) 432-5707.
Today's photo shows the Auditorum at Orange Coast College (now known as the Robert B. Moore Theater) in the 1960s.

The Dana Point Historical Society meets Monday, 7pm, at the Dana Point Community House, 24642 San Juan Ave. The speakers will be former mayor Wayne Rayfield and South Coast Water District president Dick Dietmeier. They'll discuss Dana Point's past, present and future water projects.

A fire claimed a 100-year-old home on the 26000 block of Mission St in the historic Los Rios District in San Juan Capistrano on Thursday. Luckily, no one was killed or seriously injured. The fire’s cause is under investigation.
The plunge and bathhouse in Orange's Hart Park - built in 1935 as a WPA project - are being renovated and modernized by the city. An effort is being made, however, to retain the historic look and feel of the place.
