Meet Rotary's Champions of Peace
November’s Rotary Day at the United Nations, in Geneva, Switzerland, will focus on one of Rotary’s top humanitarian priorities: peace and conflict resolution. Six honorees, including four Rotary members and two alumni of Rotary Peace Centers, will be recognized for their commitment to and work on behalf of peace projects in their communities. Their diversity reflects the varied ways that Rotary members address underlying causes of conflict.

What is the Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary? Simply stated, we are a group of engaged community leaders who work together to take action on local, regional and international projects that make a real difference. In reality, we are one of 34,000 Rotary Clubs of business and professional leaders throughout the world who are dedicated to the motto “Service Above Self”. Our club and global theme this year is “Light Up Rotary”, a theme that emphasizes our visibility, community engagement, projects, our Club and Rotary International Foundations and fun. That’s right – never ending fun.

Our club supports the Rotary International eradication of polio project (we are this close), and is involved at some level in the six areas of focus which include Peace and Conflict Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and Sanitation, Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy and Economic and Community Development. This year we are planning to participate in a major District Project in Guatemala, a multi-club service project in Mexico, a continuing water project in Myanmar, and we are helping to host a Rotary exchange student in our own community. Our vibrant club meets at the Palos Verdes Golf Club on Fridays at noon. At each meeting we welcome guests to interact with featured speakers, and in honor of our speakers, we donate funds to purchase enough polio vaccine for 50 children in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. And, once a month we take a break from Friday meetings and have a Wednesday Nite Live reception hosted by the club at unique locations throughout the South Bay.

We are very active locally. Our own Club Foundation provides need-based scholarships as well as a STEM scholarship to graduating seniors and Marymount California University college students on the peninsula and to the college-bound students from the Los Angeles Harbor Area Boys and Girls Club. This year the club is funding a new vocational grant which will enable a young person tograduate from Wilmington, California to enroll in a vocational program locally. Funds are raised through sponsorship of the Peninsula’s exemplary Educator of the Year Program, and via co-sponsorship of the annual Concours d”Elegance classic car show at Los Verdes Golf Course. We also clean Crenshaw Boulevard, hand out phone directories, donate binoculars to the Interpretive Center, sponsor programs at the Norris Theater, honor our local veterans, police, firemen and teachers, host with the Chamber of Commerce a Legislative Forum and engage in creative and fun-filled activities for our members and our community. Ethics is at the top of our agenda; more to come on this topic.

Come join us for lunch at our growing club; although membership is by invitation, you don't need to be a member to come and learn why PVP Rotary is the most trusted name in community service. Come and have fun with some impressive community members who value service to others.
