 Saturday, December 28, 6:00 PM

     Following tradition, our December Fold, Staple, and Mutilate will be hosted by Bill Adams and his mother Mrs. Inez Adams at their home in Jones Valley.  They have always set a beautiful table and made delicious goodies to help keep the holiday festivities going.  And amid the talking, eating, and general good cheer we'll get the newsletter assembled and ready for mailing.  Their home is located at 7104 Jones Valley Dr. SE, Huntsville.


     "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, December 20, 2:00 PM-4:00 PM


     Everyone is invited to participate in the annual Mensa Kids Trek "Gifting the Gifted."  An audience is always very much appreciated, and performers are welcome to share their hobbies, talents, and/or skills for about five minutes for each presentation.   We shall meet in the Huntsville Public Library auditorium. Each performance may be done by an individual or by a team, but must be suitable for family entertainment.


        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,


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

     Our December dinner meeting will be held at 88 Buffet, located at 6125 University Drive, Huntsville Alabama 35806, at 6:00 PM.


    This is our annual casual, fun, no formal program event: however, Santa and the Grinch have been known to show up to get the party going.  White elephants (those treasures you no longer need but want to share with someone else) are expected to dress for the occasion.


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 for December will be at Casa Blanca @ Main Street South, 7500 South Memorial Parkway, 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!
