This letter was sent to Del Mar City Manager Scott Huth and to this newspaper for publication.
On behalf of the Del Mar Foundation, we would like to sincerely thank the City of Del Mar and the Department of Community Services for their strong support and efforts to diligently manage the crowds both on the sand and in the parks during the local Summer Twilight Concert Series events. As the Del Mar Foundation celebrates 30 years of concerts in the park, the community has shown tremendous support through their attendance at these events.
While we have acknowledged the efforts of Pat Vergne and the Community Services team publicly at each of the concerts, enough cannot be said about their efforts in support of this community event. Importantly, the tireless work of enforcement officers to ensure safety for attendees and residents before, during, and following events provides a sense of comfort as well as deep appreciation. The support from the lifeguard crew during these events does much to impress upon the value of the new beach safety center and the strength that each lifeguard’s training and expertise bring to our community.
The Del Mar Foundation looks forward to continuing to work together with the city to promote civic pride and cohesiveness through diverse cultural and community events such as the Summer Twilight Concert Series for years to come.
With much appreciation,
Carolyn E. Kling,
President, Del Mar Foundation
