Del Mar Community Connections

Wrapping up the holidays: DMCC celebrated seniors!


On December 16, 2021, seniors gathered on the Del Mar Civic Center Plaza to celebrate the holiday season. We served homemade hot cocoa and cookies lovingly made by members of DMCC’s Social and Good Times committee. We enjoyed live entertainment courtesy of Mayor Dwight Worden on acoustic guitar, the duo of Adam Kaye and Beatrice Crosbie, and a holiday-themed singalong from DMCC’s Singing Together group. Even Santa stopped by to check out our party!


The next day, Project Joy volunteers from the Del Mar Garden Club delivered gifts to spread extra cheer to 54 senior households that needed it the most. Project Joy is a collaboration between DMCC and DMGC and is quickly becoming a beloved annual tradition. 


All of DMCC’s holiday celebrations were planned in order to bring people together during a time when we depend on the kindness of neighbors more than ever, and we thank the San Diego Seniors Community Foundation for contributing funding. We hope your holiday festivities were as joyful as ours.
