Michelle Obama and Maria Shriver in San Francisco

Michelle Obama and Maria Shriver kick off United We Serve. Read about that here.
Fast forward to Monday, June 22, 2009, when the two Chicago-born first ladies -- Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States and Maria Shriver, First Lady of California -- appear together in San Francisco at a conference to boost volunteerism, a cause both of them have embraced.

They will appear together the 2009 National Conference on Volunteering and Service. The two will deliver brief remarks and, according to a release from Mrs. Obama's office, "work on a community playground service project with volunteers at a mid-day event at Bret Harte Elementary School in San Francisco."

Later on Monday afternoon, Mrs. Obama gives a keynote address to the conference, hosted by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Points of Light Institute at the Moscone Center.

Mrs. Obama's San Francisco visit leads off a string of events across the country in which Cabinet members will highlight volunteer projects. Lynn Sweet
