Ashley Simpkins, Program Director
DMCC’s Program Committee works hard to plan programming relevant to the seniors in town, and to that end we have developed some new programs that respond to community requests.
Starting October 24th, the Del Mar Trailblazers will meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 9am to walk from Zenergy Physical Therapy (at the corner of 9th and Camino Del Mar) to Powerhouse Park, and back. Led by volunteers Jamie Jensen and Charlotte Gumbrell, each session will include some stretching and light snacks. This program will promote health for the body, mind, and social life. All levels are encouraged to join us!
We have received quite a few requests for Mah Jongg lessons, and volunteer Linda Levine has agreed to teach them! Over a six-week session, she’ll teach a small class to play the strategic and social game that can “supercharge your mental health.” Can’t do it this Fall? That’s okay – make sure you join our email list to learn about an upcoming session next Spring.
Sunday Salon Series returns
Our Sunday Salon series brings to Del Mar a centuries-old tradition of enlightened people gathering together to learn and socialize. Del Mar friends and neighbors assemble on a Sunday afternoon in a private home to share light refreshments and enjoy live music or a lecture from a prominent member of the community about their area of expertise. The all-volunteer DMCC Salon Committee led by Susan Halenza and Sheila Sharpe is quite busy planning upcoming salons; they will feature discussions of extensive private art collections, a talk on artificial intelligence, an autobiographical experience of adventure climbing, a look at the world behind the scenes of horse racing, and we’ll wrap up the season with a private classical music concert. Join our mailing list to be notified of opportunities to sign up for this unique and enlightening activity.
