Village Volunteers

Human talent may be the most precious resource we have as a city. We enjoy a rich complex of advisory committees and non-profit organizations that provides vital services to the community and feeds the city’s policy and decision processes.

At any given time, literally hundreds of Delmarians are actively engaged as volunteers with these bodies. Over time, the volunteer count has easily exceeded a thousand citizen volunteers. Recently the City Council hosted a reception for the current volunteer population. Council members lauded their creativity, diligence, and passion for the community. Council members acknowledged that government decision making flows directly from the serious, thoughtful work done by their advisory committees. Much of what we take pride in as a very special community is a direct result of the extraordinary level of citizen involvement in the affairs of the city.

Fifty years ago citizens banded together to achieve incorporation as a city. Forty years ago, several hundred citizens worked in committees to develop a Community Plan that was approved by voters. That Plan has worked as a kind of constitution to guide our development becoming one of the most desirable small towns in all of California.

This tradition of citizen participation continued and intensified through the years. What would we be today without the sustained effort of the Lagoon Committee, the Design Review Board, Del Mar Community Connections, to mention only a few?
We, the all-volunteer Sandpiper editors, urge all citizens, newly arrived as well as old timers, to find opportunities to participate in the continuing work of the twenty-plus organizations now serving our town.
It’s the Del Mar way.

(For volunteer opportunities see our community calendar in every issue and consult the city’s web site at www.delmar.ca.us)

Del Mar's Volunteers:

The Sandpiper thanks all Del Mar volunteers, including the following individuals who are on the City's list of volunteers, as well as others not on this list but whose contributions add immeasurably to our community:
