June FS&M

 Sunday, June 28, 2:00 PM


     Ken Shepard and Shirley Sims-Shepard are hosting this month's Fold, Staple & Mutilate gathering at their home.  It is a pleasant drive over the river (depending where you live).  Come and treat yourself to a fun afternoon. Shirley says "Bring smiles, hugs, and a few laughs.  Light snacks and drinks will be provided, and you are welcome to bring along something to share."


     Directions to their home at 13 Shadow Way, Priceville:  From I-65 exit east on State Highway 67 toward Priceville (exit 334). Go 1.6 miles east until you can see the hiway beginning to narrow to two lanes.  Opposite Truckers Warehouse on the left, turn right into Shadow Mountain Lane.  13 Shadow Way is the second house on the right.


     "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.

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

     The June Dinner meeting will held at the West End Grill, located at 6610 Old Madison Pike, Huntsville. The restaurant is in a small strip mall on the east side of Alabama route 55 across from the Bridge Street shopping center. (256) 772-8040


     Long time local member and bee keeper Rob Glover will talk to us about how he came to be a beekeeper and how he uses other natural methods to garden for better health.  He will begin with a short discussion of the methods he uses and how they have benefited him and then welcome your questions.



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 May will be at Tim's Cajun Kitchen.  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!
