"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.

July Dinner Meeting
The July Dinner meeting will be held in Florence, Alabama to provide our quad cities members an opportunity to join us without undertaking the long drive to Huntsville. Of course, it also gives Huntsville/Madison Mensans a chance to experience a new dinner meeting venue. Hopefully, we'll all come away with some new Mensa friends and our Florence area members may even decide to plan a few events or their own the the Florence area.
The location is the Evergreen Chinese Restaurant on 2350 Florence Blvd in Florence, Alabama 35630 (Phone 256-718-3838).
Our speaker, member Karen Thome, will give a short talk on reverse mortgages and host a question and answer session.
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 will not meet in July since Tim's Cajun Kitchen will be closed for the holiday. 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!
