Del Mar Community Connections

DMCC Transportation programs are back and growing!

The DMCC Sassy Chassis is back on the road! Essential transportation services like the grocery van have been back from a Covid-induced pause for quite some time, but now active seniors are also able to enjoy our cultural and recreational transportation programs. Two Mondays a month, the Sassy Chassis becomes the venue for the Retail Therapy Club. DMCC Explorers have recently visited Cabrillo National Monument and taken a historical walking tour of La Jolla, and they will soon be visiting Balboa Park and Leo Carillo Ranch. We even sent a free shuttle to the Safari Park at the end of February so that Del Mar seniors could take advantage of their “free to seniors” month.


DMCC’s Transportation committee plans these great programs, and they’re excited to announce a new Foodie Van in April, in which we’ll transport a group to a new or interesting restaurant outside of Del Mar. Seats are limited on these trips, so make sure you’re signed up for our email list to reserve your seat as soon as you see one of our transportation programs announced. Proof of Covid-19 vaccine+booster is required from each participant, and participants are provided with a KN95 mask to wear while on the van.


DMCC Report to the Community
DMCC’s board of directors and staff are busily assembling the annual Report to the Community, published each April. We aim to be transparent with our contributors, participants, and volunteers about what progress we’ve made in the preceding 12 months and provide some photo illustrations of the difference our community makes! If you have contributed to DMCC in the past year, a copy of the report will be sent to the address we have on file. If one is not sent to your home, it will be posted on our website, or starting in mid-April, you can pick one up from our office in the Del Mar Community Building at 225 9th St.


Volunteer of the Month – March
DMCC’s Volunteer of the Month for March 2022 was Dan DeNike, who works hard at big DMCC events like the holiday party and the Spring ice cream social, lifting heavy objects, bringing joy, directing traffic, and anything else we need to make the event successful!


DMCC programs and services depend on our incredible volunteers! To learn more about Dan and helping out at DMCC’s special events, visit
