Del Mar Community Connections

First Annual Spring Ice Cream Social

I scream, you scream! DMCC is hosting our first annual Spring Ice Cream Social on Friday, May 14 in the Del Mar Civic Center overflow parking lot. This event is a drive-in, in accordance with safe physical distancing protocols. Danny’s Ice Cream Truck will be on hand to provide Del Mar seniors and guests with their favorite frozen treats, served up by DMCC Social and Good Times volunteers! This event is free and the ice cream is on us, but registration is required. When registering, you will sign up your vehicle for a 20-minute time slot between the hours of Noon and 3pm. Visit to find the link to register for this event (and all DMCC events!), or call our office at (858) 792-7565, and we’ll be happy to assist you.


DMCC On-Demand

One of the benefits of remote programs is that they’re easily recorded. As a result, we have been able to post videos of many programs on the DMCC website so that anyone can be informed, entertained and engaged even if they’re unable to attend a live program as it’s happening. Visit and you too can watch and enjoy! There are special pages dedicated to our Health and Wellness Premiere Speaker Series, past lectures from Larry Brooks about Remarkable Del Mar History, Sweet Hour dessert making lessons from Carly Michaels, and a meditative movement practice in Qigong with Ali. You’ll also see many of our marquee programs, such as recent entries Do You Own Your Stuff or Does Your Stuff Own You, a decluttering talk from Jami Shapiro of Silver Linings Transitions, Estate Planning 101 from local attorney Heidi Klippel, and Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia from the Alzheimer’s Association.
