We are a committed group of neighbors and community participants seeking to make the place in which we live and work a friendlier, more pleasant, and more attractive place.
For the sixteenth straight year the Del Rey Residents Association proudly honored the top students at Marina del Rey Middle School. Current president Elizabeth Pollock and former president Lillian Jenkins presented the honorees with gifts cards in recognition of their accomplishments.

There were so many outstanding students this year that the Marina del Rey Boosters Club joined us in purchasing gift cards. There were also twenty — count ’em, 20! — students who had perfect attendance throughout their time at the school.
DRRA’s recognition of the school’s outstanding students dates back to Lillian’s tenure as president. All three of her children attended Marina Del Rey Middle School, and her son was in the first graduating class. When she retired as DRRA’s president, she asked the association to recognize the school’s stellar students in lieu of any personal honor, thus beginning a tradition that we proudly continue.
Congratulations to all the honorees and their proud families.
During a major disaster, you and your neighbors will most likely be the first responders on the scene. Working together as a team saves lives, reduces the severity of injuries and minimizes property damage.
“Map Your Neighborhood” is a program designed to help neighbors know in advance which people on their block or in their apartment building have special skills and special needs.
Join the Del Rey Residents Association on Thursday, May 12 or Tuesday May 17 at the MOA Wellness Center, 4533 S. Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, 90066 to learn how easy it is to “Map Your Neighborhood” and organize your area before disaster strikes. Sessions begin at 7:30 pm.
