Del Mar Community Connections offers a variety of free programs

Have pesky computer questions? Want to join a friendly bridge or mah jongg group? Or tune up your memory?

All of these interests, and more, are answered through free programs and classes currently offered by Del Mar Community Connections, a volunteer organization dedicated to making social, recreational, educational, health, cultural and support programs available for seniors. Most are held in the Del Mar Community Building, 225 Ninth St.

Included are:

•Knit & Stitch, held the first and third Thursday, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Come and trade yarns (real and verbal) with local knitters.

•Mah Jongg and bridge games, held weekly on Wednesdays. Whether you’re interested in learning the game of Chinese origin played with tiles, or are a Mah Jong “pro,” newcomers are welcome. Bridge players also encourage interested persons looking for friendly companionship to join them.

•Brain Fitness sessions. New classes start March 5, with orientation Feb. 20. The classes offer exercises in memory, attention and brain speed which help to create memory that’s easy to recall, focus attention so you are less distracted and help the brain to operate at top speed.

•Brain HQ refresher course, available to graduates of the DMCC Brain Fitness course. A 40-hour refresher class that offers 16 different self-directed exercises. First session starts March 5.

•Computer tutoring, held Mondays. Whether you are new to computing or just want to brush up, all questions are welcome and cheerful help given. Both PC and MAC help available.

•Pets for Seniors adoption program. Seniors 60 years of age and older may adopt an adult dog or cat and this Purina program will cover the adoption fee. It is believed that independently living seniors who have pets tend to have better physical health and mental well-being than those who do not.

•“Book Babes” Book Club, meets the last Thursday of the month. Join members who love to read in their discussions of selected books ranging from current to classic.

•Travel Club, held the second Thursday of the month. Join others who want to travel, have traveled, love hearing about adventures and getting travel tips ranging from best B&B’s to cruise lines.

•ElderLaw Senior Legal Clinic, held the third Thursday of the month. An attorney provides information on advanced healthcare directives, power of attorney, wills, referrals and more. Must be 60 years or more.

Information or enrollment in most of the classes or programs can be found at dmcc@dmcc.cc or by calling 858-792-7565.
