The Aguila Community Center is now up and functioning again. Aguila residents wish to thank the Bagdad Mine for giving their time to help Marisol Hernandez get the proper paperwork filed, so our Community Center has now deemed a non-profit (501c) organization for community programs.  William Dudley did the needed research, and Hernandez filled out and submitted the required paperwork.
