President Barack Obama left San Francisco on Friday morning after attending fundraising events and went to meet the former president George W. Bush in Texas this evening.

The 44th president and the 41th president will discuss the merits of volunteering and community service at the Points of Light Institute's Presidential Forum on Service.

George W. Bush has invited president Obama to Texas A&M University in College Station and the Bush Library, to be part of a celebration honoring Bush Sr's service organiztion, Point of Light.

 The Points of Light Foundation was established in 1990 to encourage volunteerism.

The organization is named from President Bush's inaugural address in 1989 when he referred to community organizations around the country as a thousand points of light.

Obama spent part of his youth as a community activist and champions the role of citizen volunteers as change agents.

There are some conservative student protests expected to take place outside the event hall this evening.
