|North Alabama Mensa|
December 24, 6:00 PM
It’s become a North Alabama Mensa holiday tradition: December FS&M at the home of Bill Adams and his mother, Mrs. Inez Adams. The mood abounds with festive cheer and the holiday table overflows with delicious goodies. Once we put the January newsletter "to bed," we can begin to fill our plates and participate in delightful conversation.
Bill's home is located at 7104 Jones Valley Drive SE, in Huntsville.
"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 this month will be at Tim's Cajun Kitchen
on Jordan Lane 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.

Our December dinner meeting will be held at 88 Buffet located at 6125 University
Drive, Huntsville. (256) 971-9870
Come join us our December North Alabama Mensa Dinner meeting where we’ll celebrate the end-of-year holiday season, have merry conversation, and fill our tummies with Asian, American, hibachi, sushi, and seafood. We’ll have a short business meeting, give out gaily-wrapped White Elephants, and then enjoy a SURPRISE program. Hope to see ALL of you
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!
Mensa Kids Trek Programs

Innovative ideas were showering the library auditorium like firework sparklers as the Mensa Kids Trek children and their families studied multiple approaches to the Invention Process on Sat., Nov. 9. Thank you to David Allen for sharing information on how to become Mensa members with the families and for his encouragement of the families in their endeavors.
Mensa Kids Trek families also visited MindGear Labs on Tues., Nov. 12. Some quotes from parents of children who attended: "We had a great time at MindGear last night, and I believe everyone else did also." "The staff there is wonderful. I had many questions, and they were happy to answer them all." "I had no idea what to expect from MindGear and walked out of there very impressed ".
Mensa Kids Trek is free, open to the public, and geared for all ages. Children must have adult partners.
