January 25, 4:00 PM
Valeta Wheeler will be hosting the January FS&M at her home in Huntsville. 256-883-2988
Some snacks and some kind of warm food from a crock pot will be provided. You are welcome to supplement those with your favorite smacks 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
January is Kids Trek's "Magic" month once again this year. Amazing Bob will be performing and teaching along with fellow magician, Harold Carey in the Huntsville Public Library auditorium. We will have plenty of magic wands and coin tricks to give out to participants.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org
January Dinner Meeting
Our January dinner meeting will be held at Newk's Cafe, located at 4925 University Drive, Huntsville Alabama 35816, at 6:00 PM in their back room. We do not have a confirmed speaker yet - speaker information will be updated on the North Alabama Meetup site and in the northalabamamensa yahoo announcement group email.
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!
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 Januaary will be at Tim's Cajun Kitchen, 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!
