May FS&M &
April 25, 5:00 PM
This month Travis and Louise Hardin are hosting a picnic-style Memorial Day FS&M on Monday, May 25, starting at Noon, featuring a summer salad bar. A variety of salad greens, some summer fruit and veggies, cheese, chicken salad, luncheon meats and crackers. You are welcome to in a favorite salad item or dressing, side dish, drinks, desert or other tasty snack, but this is optional. After munching for an hour or so, the tables will be cleared and the newsletter folded, labeled and tabbed for mailing. We will fit a short ExCom meeting in with the newsletter prep. Then more grazing and optional game playing until 5:00 pm.
"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.

May Dinner Meeting
The May Dinner meeting will be at The International House of Pancakes (IHOP) on 8622 US Highway 72 West in Madison, AL.
The speaker/topic is TBD. If you have a hobby or interest to share please contact Linda Graves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 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!
