John E. Halver

LFP Rotary meeting May 2, 7:15-8:30 am, Wednesday morning, at the LFP Presbyterian Church.

The Lake Forest Park Rotary Club has named its local foundation after a distinguished member, John E. Halver, respected worldwide for his research and applied science on the nutritional benefits of fish consumption.

On Wednesday morning, May 2, the Rotary Club will honor John by inducting the first six recipients of the John E. Halver Award for financial contributions made to the newly named foundation.  John, who recently turned 90, but still travels the globe giving talks on his latest research, will present the morning’s  program on the effects of removing Olympic Peninsula dams to enhance salmon restoration.   (meeting details:  LFP Presbyterian Church, 7:15-8:30am, Wednesday mornings).   

Lovingly referred to as “Dr. Fish Oil” by club members, John is evangelical in his quest to encourage everyone to supplement their diets with fish oil. John, and wife Jane, reside in Lake Forest Park’s Sheridan Beach.   
"We are honored that John would lend his name to our foundation," says LFP Rotary President, Frank Michiels.  The foundation funds local and international service projects including the free Rotacare Clinic in Lake City, scholarships, music and dictionaries in Shoreline schools, food baskets, etc.
