Come Join Us for another beautiful fall day in Wisconsin. A group of us made a pilgrimage to Holy Hill in Wisconsin last year and had a wonderful time. I am planning the event again this year for the same weekend. I realize that it is the same weekend at CM Nashville, but for those of you who are looking for something local and low cost, this might be the event for you.
Here is the link to the thread I started in the forums so that you can read updates and contact people in the thread that plan to attend. http://www.catholicmatch.com/forums/topics/posts?topic_id=154509
Friday: A time to visit will be arranged with those of you who are traveling to the area from out of town. Remember to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. There will be a few preparations made for Saturday.
Morning REVISION: Instead of canoeing, we are going to go to Basse's Taste of Country Farm. http://www.bassesfarms.com/about.html We will meet there at 10:00 AM to enjoy "time on the farm." For those who are interested, we can go through the Corn Maze! I plan on doing that for sure! So if you come late and try calling me... you might not find me. I might still be wandering around trying to find my way out. :-)

Janet, You made my first CM Event experience one to remember for a lifetime. The visit to Holy Hill and the Stations of the Cross was truly spiritual and carthartic. The exceptional food at the restaurants was superb. The visit to Cedarburg for shopping and sight-seeing was very enjoyable. I also had fun visiting Basse's Farm and taking pictures with the scarecrow. Did somebody try to pick up a heavy pumpkin? Thank you!!!!!

Wow! Thanks to CM they sent out an email blast to many people... and I have been getting some great responses! It looks like we are going to have quite a few more people coming to the event. Be ready to share in Faith, Fellowship & Friendship. I know this day is coming at a good time in my life. I hope the rest of you will enjoy it as well.

Just to let all the ladies know... there are 3 men that are going to be attending the event who are not listed on the guest list. 2 of them are former CM members that have remained my friends.... and the other is a friend of one of them. We have a great mix of men and women coming to the event. If you've been on the fence of whether or not to come... jump in on the fun like Jane did.
