The parties will be on the Friday nights after the hike at approximately 8:30  P.M. on the dates shown.  If you attend any of the parties please bring something to eat and/or drink.  At the request of the homeowners and the Val Verde Retirement Center and for the health and enjoyment of all concerned, NO SMOKING is allowed in the homes or at Valle Verde.


MARCH  8TH   The party will be at The Valle Verde Retirement Center at 900 Calle De Los Amigos in Santa Barbara.  There may be residents from the retirement home attending the party.  This is their home and we must all respect that.  These people move slower and I would appreciate if you give them assistance if they need it and be aware of the fact that they may be slower than the Sierra Club hikers.


Parking is on Calle De Los Amigos in front of the main building at 900 Calle De Los Amigos.  Facing the building at 900 Calle De Los Amigos, go to the right side of the Administration building and walk up the sidewalk there to the Theater where the Potluck Party will be.


The slides will be by Robert Bernstein on his recent trip to a remote area of Baja California, Mexico. The first part of the trip was to see where the gray whales gather to breed and give birth. The second half was along the Sea of Cortez.
