April 2 – Dr. William Ailor, founder and former president of the Palos Verdes Land Conservancy will be discussing the threat that asteroids and comets can pose to humanity.

COFFEE & CARS
On Saturday, April 5, 2014, the Peninsula Seniors will sponsor Coffee & Cars at the Peninsula Shopping Center (off Silver Spur Road and Hawthorne Boulevard in Rolling Hills Estates). A group of car enthusiasts will bring their Hot Rod, Custom, Muscle Car, Sports Car, Antique, and other special interest vehicles, to the Peninsula Shopping Center parking lot where you can admire the cars, meet the owners and ask them questions.
Coffee & Cars is held the first Saturday of every month in the parking area near Starbucks and Rite Aid in the Peninsula Shopping Center. Each month, a different type of car is featured and for the month of April, British Cars will be shown. For a fun morning activity put on your comfortable shoes and enjoy the outdoors with other car buffs. (May will feature Ford, Lincoln and Mercury cars & trucks. June will be featuring Italian Cars.)
