Welcome to CM to you Helen and Ted.
CM does not sponsor any local in real life events. But there are members who organize things for others to get together. It's all volunteer, and in some areas there are regular events (Chicago and Kentucky and LA are two that I know about).
Go either to "More" ANd scroll down to "Events"--they are set out there, or under the Forums, there is a room "Member Meetups".
Check them out and see if your locality has had/is having anything!
