 Saturday, September 27, 4:00 PM

     This month Valeta wheeler will be hosting FS&M at her home located at 613 Glencoe Rd. SE, Huntsville.


     Valeta has put in an order for a beautiful fall day, but not so nice that folks won't mind spending an hour or so inside putting newsletters together.  Interesting conversation is a sure thing. Some snacks wil be provided. You are welcome to supplement those with your favorite snacks if you wish.


     "FS&M" is our affectionate term for assembling the NORBAMENSA newsletter. The pages get folded, stapled and labeled. No experience necessary, free training, and you get the scoop early, along with another opportunity for interesting chatter.


Mensa Kids Trek
Saturday, September 20, 2:00 PM-4:00 PM


     The September Kids Trek event will be Arts and Crafts from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the Huntsville Public Library auditorium.


        Mensa Kids Trek is free, open to the public, and geared for all ages. Children must have adult partners.  For more information on Mensa Kids Trek and/or Brain Trek, please contact Martha Williams,




      Temperance for September will be at Tim's Cajun Kitchen in Huntsville. If you're new to MENSA you might be misled by the tongue-in-cheek name of this event.  Don't let that keep you from joining us on the first Friday of each month at 5:30.  The truth is, we drink up and relax after a hard week at work or play (for the retired folks).  Some order dinner, others just enjoy the company and a couple of drinks.  On the odd-numbered months we meet at Tim's Cajun Kitchen on Jordan Lane.  On the even numbered months we meet at Casa Blanca on South Memorial Parkway in Main Street South shopping center.  The event is open to all members and their families.  Hope to see you there!

September Dinner Meeting
 Sunday, September 21, 6:00 PM

     The September dinner meeting will be a lively one!  We have reserved a space at the 88 Buffet, at 6125 University Drive, Huntsville, Alabama, 35806. The Sunday buffet is $11.50 per person, plus drinks.


     During the dinner meeting which begins at 6:00 pm, there will be opportunities for speakers to tell a short personal story of 3-5 minutes.  Don't worry if you can't tell a story about yourself off the top of your head - notes are OK. Let's amaze the diners and staff at 88 Buffet with the diversity of talents among our "family"!


     To sign up before the meeting, email Shirley Sims-Shepard at



Don't Forget Your White Elephants!


          Don't forget to bring your White Elephants to the dinner meeting.  These are items you no longer treasure, but think someone else will. Items are brought in bags and numbers are assigned to names and the fun begins as random numbers are called.  The most popular items are books and magazines - Mensans never have enough to read!


Let's Eat


     Local group members usually schedule two opportunities for our members to join together at local restaurants for dinner on Wednesdays.  For obvious reasons, they are referred to as "Let's Eat, Huntsville" and "Let's Eat, Madison."  Both provide great atmospheres for enjoying the company of fellow Mensans.
