Announcing the DMCC Digital Den
Today’s seniors are computer savvy, and need a space that is responsive to changing technologies. Thanks to a Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant awarded by San Diego County, DMCC has built an all-new technology lab inside the Del Mar Community Building (225 9th St) so that we can respond to that need. The Digital Den will be a site for interactive computer instruction, cognitive training, open community use, cooperative projects, and more. The Digital Den is comfortable, useful, and energy efficient, and we’re excited to share it with Del Mar. Stay tuned for details about the opening of the Digital Den and upcoming programs!
Call for volunteers who drive
The DMCC volunteer ride service is vital to seniors who are aging independently at home but no longer drive. We could not offer this service without our generous volunteers, who help our senior riders with grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other essential errands. Our volunteers love the flexible schedule, and they report enormous satisfaction from the difference they make in the lives of their neighbors. If you are a licensed driver with a clean record and access to your own vehicle, please give our office a call to find out if this volunteer opportunity is right for you; we’re training new volunteers this summer, and we’d love for you to join our team.
DMCC Theater Van
San Diego has a thriving theater scene, and now Del Mar seniors can enjoy the theater with a group of neighbors – no one has to drive at night! DMCC will occasionally provide transportation to the Old Globe for an evening production – just park at the Del Mar Community Building, and our driver will get you safely to the theater and bring you back to Del Mar after the show. A group of DMCC seniors attended the theatrical adaptation of A Thousand Splendid Suns in May. On July 31, we’ll provide transportation to see Neil Simon classic Barefoot in the Park. The transportation is free, but you’re responsible for the cost of your own ticket; call our office to find out if you’re eligible for this service and to reserve your seat on the van.
