Del Mar Community Connections

Annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration
DMCC Has the Sweetest Volunteers! DMCC’s volunteers drive seniors to medical appointments, create and lead engaging programs, serve meals, and so much more. This year, we are so excited to celebrate our volunteers in person for the first time in two years! We’ll have food, beverages, games and giveaways, and it’s a great opportunity for DMCC volunteers to get to know one another while sharing their experiences. If you have not yet received your invitation for the celebration on 5/12, please contact the DMCC office.


Let DMCC Treat You to Something Sweet

The Spring Ice Cream Social is back and sweeter than ever on Friday, May 20th in the Del Mar Civic Center Plaza. Danny’s Ice Cream Truck will return 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. Proof of Covid-19 vaccine+booster is required to attend. 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’s Report to the Community

The Power of Connection, DMCC’s 2022 Report to the Community, has been sent to members of the community who have been involved with DMCC in the recent past. We hope you enjoy the brief snapshot of another year of supporting and serving seniors. If you did not receive a copy of the Report to the Community, please call DMCC at (858) 792-7565 and we will set one aside for you to pick up at DMCC Headquarters at 225 9th street.
