Del Mar Community Connections

DMCC’s activity calendar is booked…  Many Del Mar seniors are avid readers. That’s why Page Turners, our book talk club organized in partnership with the Del Mar branch library, is a great destination for an author visit. We have recently hosted visits from bestselling writers such as Lisa See (The Island of Sea Women), Alka Joshi (The Henna Artist), Edith Eger (The Gift), and Elizabeth Letts (The Ride of Her Life). We will soon welcome Jasmin Darznik, author of The Bohemians, and Kate Quinn, author of The Rose Code and The Alice Network. DMCC volunteers Georgia Dutro and Sheila Sharpe work hard to communicate with these writers and their representatives in order to arrange the fascinating visits, which typically happen at 2pm on the fourth Thursday of the month over Zoom. If you enjoy spending quality time with a book, but you aren’t attending the remote Page Turners discussions, you’re really missing out!


…and helping you keep the books…  In late January, local CPA Wayne Otchis, who is now also DMCC’s treasurer, presented “What’s New in 2022?,” an incredibly helpful overview of what Del Mar retirees and seniors need to know before preparing their 2021 taxes. Wayne reviewed changes in tax laws and answered questions that helped community members to plan their approach.


…and in the books! You can visit to find and view past videos of programs like the Page Turners author visits and Wayne’s tax update. Visit or subscribe to our email list to find out what’s coming up in the future and learn how to get yourself signed up for any DMCC activity of interest.
