FS&M Meeting

 Sunday, April 25, 5:00 PM
 

    Join us for Fold, Staple and Mutilate at the home of Kelly Morger & Ulf Lindstrom located at 11 Sanoma Drive, Madison, AL 35758. Light snacks will be available and you are welcome to bring your favorite along to share.  We'll staple, fold, label and add tabs to the newsletter to prepare it for mailing.  It isn't hard or time consuming work, so there's always lots of time for socializing during and after FS&M.

   

     "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.

FS&M Meeting

 Sunday, March 22

 

     We had a great turnout for the March FS&M, loads of good food and plenty of time to talk and party.

 

 

   

 

   

 

 

 

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. 

 

Temperance

 

      Temperance for March will be at Casa Blanca, Main Street South, Huntsville, AL. 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!
