Join us for the 4th annual CM Indy Christmas party! Our reputation is growing: Are our events really that much fun? Come and find out for yourself. We love to see our friends from both near or far, and thoroughly enjoy making new friends. We’re going to have a wonderful time celebrating Christ’s birth with plenty of fun and fellowship. Please come if you can! You won’t regret it.
Dawn (CM #58330) is your contact point for all questions and information. Rob (CM #362135) is our host for the evening. Come for just a while, or enjoy the entire experience.
Mass; Pitch-In dinner & breakfast; Icebreaker games; White Elephant gift exchange; Christmas Carols; Board games; Catholic Fellowship and FUN, FUN, FUN!
We’ll start with the Vigil Mass at 5:30 pm at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church (14598 Oakridge Rd., Carmel, IN 46032)… Meet us at Mass-- or, if you need to drop off food stuff at Rob’s house before Mass, please be at Rob’s by 5:00 pm (directions to Rob’s house will be provided by private message). There are several Masses Sunday morning at OLMC if you need them.
The party officially begins at Rob’s house at 7:00 pm. Come and stay as long as you can!
You are more than welcome to stay the night (especially out-of-towners!) We’ll have separate places for men and women in spare bedrooms, on couches and on the floor. PLEASE bring your own pillow, air mattress & bedding. If you prefer, there is a hotel very close to his house (www.comfortsuites.com #IN115). For anyone staying the night, we’ll have a pitch-in breakfast Sunday morning and more good conversation.
This is one of the best CAMA Indy parties, so make it if you can! If you can’t make it, join us another time. (Look for our annual Chili Cook Off in February or March next year.)
Sign up by RSVPing here on the CM event page as definitely attending. Please tell us if you’ll be joining us for Mass, staying overnight and what you’ll bring for the pitch-ins. Don't forget to check back here frequently. You can also find CAMA Indy on FaceBook. If you are new, say you don't know anyone, you've got plenty of time to get to know others who are attending prior to Dec 3.
A Pitch-In menu for both dinner and breakfast will be posted soon, as will an explanation of the White Elephant gift exchange.
Please RSVP by November 27th (the sooner the better, so we can plan.) Looking forward to celebrating with some of the best people on the planet!

Whew! You all wore me out...I'm in my pj's right now and it's not even 6pm! I'm going to have to take a nap. It was such a special weekend. Thanks for everyone who put up with me and my cold and yet hugged me anyways. Boy I really could go for some more hugs right about now! :) And of course I must now call you all my dear friends because I broke down and cried before I left :( as I was sad to see the weekend over and have to drive away. I did cry for about 1.5 hours in the car too. The rain and my tears were falling. You are truly a special group of people and I love you all!
