UPCOMING EVENTS

Plans for early 2018
While details remain to be settled, there are plans for the following activities in the first few months of 2018.

February
Skating party at a local ice rink. Perhaps around Beanpot time and perhaps in collaboration with local alumni groups from BU, Harvard, and Northeastern.

March
Hike to Eagle Rock. The cover photo on the chapter’s Facebook page was taken at Eagle Rock. It is accessible on the Pacific Crest Trail, which we can reach on a 3-mile (each way) hike from Warner Springs.

Later in March, we’re thinking of a tour of the Flying Leathernecks Aviation Museum, located at Marine Corps Air Station, Miramar. The day may also include a visit to the air station’s Officers Club, which contains artifacts from the movie, Top Gun.

Also under consideration is a tour of public art at UC San Diego. We do expect to arrange a service activity in conjunction with BC’s “Global Days of Service” in April.

We welcome any thoughts and suggestions.
