FS&M

 Saturday, October 25, 4:00 PM
 

     This month Rob Glover will be hosting FS&M at his home located at 2005 Giles Dr NE, Huntsville.  Check your newsletter for directions.

   

     "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.

Temperance

 

      Temperance for October will be at Casa Blanca @ Main Street South, 7500 South Memorial Parkway, Huntsville, AL.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!

November Dinner Meeting
 Sunday, November 16, 6:00 PM
 

     Our November dinner meeting will be held at Tai Pan Palace, located at 2012 Memorial Parkway SW, Huntsville Alabama 35801, at 6:00 PM.

 

    Our speaker this month is Nicole Simmons of the Huntsville Gentiva Hospice office.  She will explain what Hospice offers, and answer any questions about their services.  This can be a difficult  topic to think about with our close family members, xo let's get armed with facts before a decision like this needs to be made. 

 

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. 

 

Mensa is a social organization formed by and for people who have scored above the 98th percentile on a recognized IQ test.  Mensa has three stated purposes; to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity, to encourage research in the nature, characteristics and uses of intelligence, and to promote stimulation intellectual and social opportunities for its members.
