    If you are not carpooling with us, be sure to meet us at the corner of Alpine Road and Willowbrook... We are NOT meeting in the main parking lot on Portola Road...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
