Old Del Mar remembered at tea

More than 60 residents gathered at the Powerhouse on Feb. 9 for Del Mar Community Connections’ annual Valentine Tea. The event was the first of many celebrations to come this year celebrating Del Mar’s 50th Anniversary.

Residents shared memories from 1959, the year Del Mar became a city. Singer Dodie Stevens performed songs from that era, including the one that she recorded in Del Mar in 1959 that launched her career, “Pink Shoelaces.”
