HALF MOON BAY, Calif. (KGO) -- A memorial service was held Tuesday for the seven victims of last week's shootings at two farms in Half Moon Bay.
The interfaith service started at 4 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club Event Center in Half Moon Bay, and was followed by a candlelight procession and a dinner.
Tuesday's events signaled another evening of healing for residents of Half Moon Bay. The same group of city officials, businesses, interfaith and nonprofit organizations which led the large vigil last Friday, is also leading the effort.
The location of the event is also of significance: On the night of the shootings, victims' families all met here, where they learned about the extent of the tragedy and heard the news that would forever change their lives
The farm where four people were killed -- California Terra Garden -- is back open Tuesday. Vice Mayor Joaquin Jimenez says Concord Farms, the second location where three others were killed, is still closed.
Jimenez believes many of the farmworkers chose to go back because they were afraid to lose their jobs.
"There is a lot of fear about losing their job. If they are undocumented, getting deported and losing their housing... and there is fear. They are going to try to go along as they think the best decision is," he said.
California Terra Garden says no one would have lost their jobs.
They are working to build permanent housing in the next year.
