We had twenty people join us for dinner Saturday night and 18 for the walk on Sunday (the groups had a big overlap but there were people who could not attend the two events.) There were probably about 4000 at the bridge walk in total. It WAS a great event! Like Rob said, it was great to do something together that was profoundly Catholic in expression and to stand up for Life! Thank you everyone for attending! I'm looking forward to next year. (I think they've wrangled me to be on the planning committee for the whole event.) :)

Hello friends!! I am really excited about seeing you next weekend! Unless you and I have arranged otherwise, let's meet by 9:30 am on Sunday at the cathedral for Mass. (Unfortunately, Bishop Foys is not schedule to have Mass but it will still be absolutely beautiful.) meeting this early will give people time to meet, see the cathedral, and get good seats together. (I will get there even earlier.) Please look for the balloons in the parking lot-- they will identify our group.
If you would like details about where a large group of CM friends are eating on Saturday night, email me. We would love to have you join us!!
As always, keep me updated on your plans.

Hi Christy!! It'll be good to see you again.
The Levee is the area along the riverfront across from Cincinnati. So of course there is our spectacular skyline! There are several great restaurants, clubs, and shops in the area. There is an awesome aquarium. The area is also home to quite a bit of history. The city is Newport, KY, which during the days of Prohibition was known as the gambling center of the US. Lots of back room stakes and mob activity. The Tommy gun was invented there.
In the same area we have The World Peace Bell, which we will see. Nearby Covington (where the cathedral is) is also very historic. This area has several homes which may have been stops along the Underground Railroad. The walk along the river is scenic, full of riverboat yore and antebellum homes.

Michelle, you are too funny! I was going to post something in here today for the same reason!
I'd like to welcome all of you who are considering making this your first CM event. I am quite honored! For those of you who are local to Cincinnati, I am eager to meet you and introduce you to the people from out of town (like Michelle, Eric, Shawn, Rob, and a few others who are coming) that I know through the Indy Crew. I'm also eager to share this event with other out of towners who may be making this their first event. And it is always a blast to be with my friends who I feel are like family. Thank you for planning to help celebrate life in such a unique way!
If you have any questions at all, please contact me. When we get closer to June 2, we'll discuss more details.
