That's RIGHT - we did it! We set a new CM record at our Indy Christmas Party this past weekend -
EQUAL NUMBER OF MEN AND WOMEN at an event!
None of this being 'outnumbered' this time - we had 11 of each gender at the party. And at mass beforehand, the men outnumbered the women 11-7. Do you know how wonderful it was to worship together surrounded by male voices strong in song and prayer? To the gents who were there, I thank you for being the wonderful faith-filled Catholic men you are.
I commented on this in another thread, but I really thought the numbers ALONE were worthy of their own thread in this room. Hopefully some other men will be encouraged to come to an event, any event, in Indy or anywhere else - and join in.
POTENTIAL ATTENDEES - look at it this way - if you were looking for a job, you'd be networking like crazy, putting your best foot forward, presenting your best YOU to those you meet. Well, here you're looking for your match, right? So get out there and meet as many people as you can! Be friendly, have some fun, get to know more CMers in real life. You may not find your match at your first event - but you'll make some new female friends. You may not be the match for us - but we know a LOT of other available ladies and we'll spread the word about how great you are.
We had a handful of first time attendees, and I think they ALL had a wonderful time with us. They said they're looking forward to the next one - which by the way is our Chili Cook Off on Feb 9th!! (Shamelss plug.)
BTW - the mistletoe came in handy for several attendees. Friendly Christmas cheer was all over the place!
