Hiking (03/18/2012)

Spring has finally arrived in the Bay Area.  We would like to invite you to join us for the CALOBA’s 2012 March Monthly Event.  This March event will start with hiking at the Stanford Dish, followed by a lunch meeting around noon.  Let's take some time off away from the busy work or study, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, and discuss any questions or doubts you may have.
