 Friday, September 2, 5:30 PM


     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.  We meet at Tim's Cajun Kitchen on Jordan Lane.  The event is open to all members and their families.  Hope to see you there!


September FS&M

 Saturday, September 24, 5:00 PM


     The September FS&M will be hosted by Rob Glover at his home, located at 2005 Giles Dr., Huntsville, AL. Any food in the house is likely to be healthy stuff, however, you are welcome to bring smacks and drinks of your choosing. 


     Of course, if you have a stapler, you might want to bring it along.


      "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.


September Dinner Meeting
 Sunday, September 18, 6:00 PM

     The September Dinner meeting will be held at Ding How II Chinese Restaurant, located at 4800 Whitesburg Drive, Huntsville, AL.  256-880-8883


     Our speaker this month will be Louise Hardin.  Louise will give an overview of the AARP Foundation's Tax-Aide program, which provides free tax preparation for the low income and elderly populations.  She'll include information on what this volunteer-run program provides, what volunteers do, and common errors made by the average tax-payer.  Louise has been a volunteer in the program for four years and is the current Tax Training Specialist for the Tax-Aide program in Alabama.


  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 one or 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.
