“St. Valentine's Day, February 14, 2020, at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. Rotarians, many with spouses and partners joined in celebrating a St Valentine's luncheon with the entertainment of Curly's Cafe All-Star Dixie Land Band courtesy of John Schuricht. The meeting was energetic and lively swinging & swaying to the music of Ed Weiss on trombone, Richard Tucker on trumpet, Judi Haase - vocalist, Dave Conrad on clarinet, John Norton on tuba, and our own John Schuricht on piano.”

PVP Rotarians brightened the day for many seniors at a
Valentine's event with 84 bouquets of roses donated by the Torrance Sam's Club.  Derald Sidler and Phyllis Pelezzare transported the flowers to two senior centers in Redondo Beach and Torrance.  Juliet's friend, Marcia Okawa sang love songs for a half-hour concert while she accompanied her on the piano, which was followed by refreshments.  Rick Mendoza was on hand to capture the moments on camera while his wife, Helen helped distribute the bouquets to the appreciative seniors.

Blasts from the Past: A Tribute

Of all of the ingredients of a successful Rotary club, leadership is the most critical.  Rotary International and Rotary clubs spend a small fortune in the training of club presidents.  At the multi-district level there is the Presidents-elect Training Seminar (PETS).  At the district level there is the District Assembly.  At the club level there is the training derived from leading activities, events and projects, as well as through service in various club officer positions.  Rotary International provides a multitude of on-line manuals, instructions, work sheets and other materials to help leaders in each of these tasks. 

Our club was chartered in 1962 as the 754th Rotary club in the world.  Today, there are more than 35,000 clubs.  In the years since, we have been blessed with a long line of successful, energetic and distinguished business and professional leaders who have served as presidents of our club.  Join us at Rotary today as we honor our past club presidents and reminisce with them with pride and laughter.  Do not miss this opportunity to say thanks.  And do bring a guest!
