The community and the Del Mar Village Association held a Helen Glaser Bench Dedication ceremony Jan. 28 in front of Smashburger Restaurant located in the Del Mar Plaza.
Well known for her active participation in a number of Del Mar organizations, knowledge of Del Mar facts and faces, and vibrant personality, longtime Del Mar resident Helen Glaser was honored by Del Mar Village Association board members, bench contributors, Del Mar Mayor Donald Mosier, Helen’s husband, Pete, and other friends and admirers.
Helen Glaser, an active member of many Del Mar organizations, including the Del Mar Village Association, Del Mar Foundation, Del Mar Historical Society, former Chamber of Commerce, and Friends of Powerhouse Park, served on countless committees and volunteered for a number of community events on behalf of the revitalization and historic preservation of downtown Del Mar.
The recently installed downtown bench is part the Del Mar Village Association’s goal of improving the village with new streetscape items such as benches, bicycle racks, and trash/recycling containers throughout the downtown village for the beautification and revitalization of downtown through the “Sponsor A Streetscape Item.” For more information, on the DMVA Streetscape Sponsorship program please visit
