Palos Verdes Peninsula Rotary Club President - Jennifer Sullivan
My name is Jennifer Sullivan, PVP Rotary Club President, Sr. Executive Director at the San Pedro & Peninsula YMCA, Auntie Extraordinaire, Four-legged Fan, and Disneyland Fanatic. I am excited to serve the great community of the Palos Verdes Peninsula as this year's Rotary Club President. 
The greatest gift we can give is our time, so choosing where we spend that time is vital.  I feel blessed to serve this great club and lead under this year's theme "Serve to Change Lives."
Rotary provides an excellent opportunity for individuals in the community to come together and support a need more significant than themselves.  The gifts that our club brings are fellowship, action, and service above self. We are a club that loves to give back. In 2021-22 our service will manifest in many ways; service projects local and international, speaker presentations that celebrate connections to the community, and networking. We hope to see you at the club and help us give back.

Howard Berg! What is his story? How did he arrive to be the faster reader in the world?  A Guinness World Record Holder? Something in him must be unique… Did he have a mission? Or did life’s circumstances land him here? How does it feel to do what he does? In order to understand how someone can help and contribute to society in such an immeasurable way, you must hear him speak.
Peter Makler, a long time Rotarian for San Pedro club, then Reno club and back to San Pedro. Peter is Architect by profession with Civil Engineering experience. Peter loves traveling and scuba diving, he really enjoys trips without itinerary, adventurous!
Peter has enjoyed working with kids through Rotary club, and he really love meeting high quality Rotarians in his traveling. He has many other slide shows of different traveling, like trip to Belize, that he is happy to share with our club if we invite him back. 
Peter started by saying French Polynesia enjoys weather not unlike Hawaii, lots of hiking trails and beautiful scenery. The diving boat they aboard has staterooms for every diver, fully equipped with diving equipment and great staff services for 7 days of diving expedition. 
At Q&A, Peter highly recommend us to get certified for diving before going to French Polynesia, since it’s French, it’s very expensive there, their trip of one week, costed him and his wife about $20K, there are other diving trips that costed half. He always bring his own equipment except weight and tank (you don’t want to take those on board of any plane).
