Coast Jazz Band Honored for Providing Holiday Music!
At 3/27/2023 City Council Meeting, the PVE Neighborhood Watch made a ceremonial presentation to appreciate four young volunteer musicians who have recently served our City.
The presentation was made to the Coast Jazz Band which is made up of students from PVIS and PVHS: Daniel Diercks, Nate Friedman, Jeff Falcone and Jennifer Area. Band leader, Daniel Diercks represented the group at the City Council meeting.
This group of talented musicians volunteered their time to provide holiday music at the PVE Santa Meet and Greet in Malaga Cove Plaza, December 2022. Their professionalism and talent created a wonderful holiday atmosphere for all who were in attendance.
In appreciation of their volunteer spirit, the PVE Neighborhood Watch provided each of them with a thank you note and small honorarium. We know that being a musician takes discipline, time and money to continue to build their skills. PVE Neighborhood Watch would like to support their successful futures.
Come and hear them play at the Peninsula Music Festival at Penn HS outdoor amphitheater from 2-5 pm on April 22.
Thanks to Special Elf Volunteers At Santa Meet & Greet
PVE Neighborhood Watch was so appreciative of the wonderful help we received from our local youth volunteers who helped us to serve hot cocoa and manage Santa's visitors. It was a chilly and wonderful event where we all made new friends.
Youth volunteers: Emily & Aaron Heinze, Talia & Maddy Herniter & Ione Eaton.

Isabella Brannan, Local PVE Scout, decided on a patriotic project to achieve her Eagle Scout designation.
Her project included collecting old American flags to be properly retired, educating the community on the proper care, maintenance and retirement of flags and building two permanent flag collection boxes to be placed at the Palos Verdes Estates City Hall. At the completion of the project, she lead her troop in a flag retirement ceremony for the City of PVE.
The PVE Neighborhood Watch was pleased to include Isabella's efforts into our Show Your Colors event as one of the many ways we were encouraging residents to celebrate the 4th of July.
At the completion of her project, she collected more than 300 flags and built 2 beautiful collection boxes.
The flag retirement ceremony was held at the Point Vincente Lighthouse. Due to COVID restrictions, only the participating scouts were able to be at the ceremony. However, PVE Neighborhood Watch representative, Karen Logan, City Councilman Kenny Kao and PVE PD Interim Chief Dan Dreiling were invited to attend the flag retirement ceremony via Zoom. It was a moving experience and one that PVE Neighborhood Watch was proud to support.

Local Enterprising Youth Provided Curb Number Updates
In 2019, Valmonte residents, Ben Gardner and Danny Stender painted house numbers for residents in PVE to help first responders better identify addresses during emergencies. They charged a nominal amount and $1 of every job was donated to PVE-CARES to support our PVE seniors program.
