Directions to 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 highway beginning to marrow to two lanes. Opposite Truckers Warehouse on the left, turn right into Shadow Mountain Lane. In the new development 13 Shadow Way is the first 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.
Temperance for April will be at Casa Blanca in Main Street South in 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!
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.
April Dinner Meeting
This year the third Sunday in April happens to be Easter Sunday. Since some of our members as well as prospective speakers may want to spend the day at home with family, we're going to try something a little different for this meeting.
First we'll fill our tummies with Asian, American, hibachi, sushi, and seafood. After a short business meeting and White Elephants, all of you will be the speakers (as in a Socrates Cafe.)
Bring a topic you'd like the group to discuss and we'll select a few to talk about. Mensans do have a hard time speaking their minds (Ha, Ha!), but let's give this a try.
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!
