Executive Director Britt Huff gave  an overview of programs and services provided to seniors over the past year, and Michael led discussion about opportunities to serve the senior community. Guests were treated to a beautiful sunset at evening’s end. For more about H.E.L.P. visit Help4srs.org.

State of the District

The first annual Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District (PVPUSD) State of the District event took plate at the Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion on October 2nd. Originally scheduled at the Peninsula Center Library, it was changed to the larger venue due to enormous demand. If you were not able to make the evening event, the presentation was recorded and is available on the PVPUSD website www.pvpusd.net to view. Dr. Alex Cherniss, Superintendent of PVPUSD, joined the community dialogue to discuss the priorities and challenges the district will be addressing in the 2019-2020 school year. Presented by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF).
