I have a group of friends that does this very same thing and it's awesome. This weekend we are meeting for miniature golf!
Smithton is about 7 or 8 hrs away. I am south of St Louis, in the Metro East.(Illinois side of the St Louis Metro area) I know that it's a great idea so please pray that someone around here besides me thinks so, too!
A "CM event" doesn't have to be a big deal -- it need only be three acquaintances meeting for coffee. Elder Bob in Kentucky has been having monthly dinners for singles in his area for several years now.
I very much value the friendships I've made over the years with CM gals. But honestly -- I'm here to meet GUYS. Please don't exclude them.
