January FS&M

 Saturday, January 30, 6:00 PM


     January FS&M will be hosted by Ken & Shirley Shepard in their home at 13 Shadow Way Decatur (Priceville), AL.   


Directions: From Huntsville or Madison, take I-565 west toward Decatur. Go to I-65 and turn south (left). Go to exit 334 and turn east (left) on Decatur/Priceville/Somerville/Highway 67/Exit 334. Go 1.6 miles. Just past the Wavaho station, which you will see on your left, get in the right turn lane and take the first right you can take from the right turn lane, which will be into a small subdivision. Sorry, somebody took down the road sign, but you will be on Shadow Mountain Lane. Go to the 2nd house on the right, 13 Shadow Way.

     Park in the circle driveway or the side driveway and come in the front door. Give hugs to the first two people you see. Set optional snack or drink to share on island in kitchen. Talk. Laugh. Snack. Repeat. At some point, help put newsletter together or offer food and beverages to the workers. Talk. Laugh. Snack. Repeat. Hug goodbye. Don't forget your leftovers.


     "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.


January Dinner Meeting
 Sunday, January 17, 6:00 PM

     The January Dinner meeting will be held at the Jason's Deli, 4800 Whitesbury Dr., Huntsville, 35802.  256-883-7300,


      Our speaker will be Dr. Julian F. "Pete" Sparks, a dentist with a passion for history.  He is the author of "A River Town's Fight for Life: The History of Guntersville, Alabama in the Civil War."   He has also been a Civil War reenactor.


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 one or 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. 




       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!
