Our Thousandth Delivery!
On March 18, 2021, DMCC’s delivery driver Amanda Allen made our thousandth pandemic response delivery. Since March 30, 2020 we have provided groceries, meals, masks, and other essential hygiene and safety supplies to more than 120 senior households. We are proud of our efforts to help seniors stay safe from viral exposure, and we thank the Del Mar Foundation for their partnership in helping to provide this vital service to the community.
Authors visit Page Turners Book Talk group
Many Del Mar seniors are avid readers. That’s why our book talk club, organized in partnership with the Del Mar branch library, is a great destination for an author visit. On April 22, Chuck Weikert, author of Coral Reef Curiosities, will visit the group remotely to discuss his book that chronicles the secret lives of coral reef animals.
On July 22, author of multiple New York Times-bestselling novels Lisa See will visit remotely to discuss her newest book about the diving women of South Korea’s Jeju Island, The Island of Sea Women. DMCC will be distributing some free copies of her book so that as many people as possible can get involved with this opportunity to meet a renowned writer.
