Mensa76 is the local group covering most zip codes that begin with the digits 76, encompassing Fort Worth, TX and the surrounding area.
Those of us that attended the Annual Gathering in Sparks NV had a wonderful time. If you have not attended an AG before, you should consider it for next year when it will be held in Baltimore, MD.
The theme of our July meeting is Ice Cream Social. This month we will have an Ice Cream Social on Saturday July 16 from 12pm - 2pm. A light complimentary lunch, drinks and snacks will be available for those in attendance along with a make your own ice cream sundae bar. We meet on the third floor in the Excellence room at the George W. Hawkes Downtown Library, located at 100 S. Center Street, Arlington 76010. Free parking available on the street or in the garage located across from the library.
Miranda will host a pool party on July 30th. Cool off in the pool, eat BBQ, Converse, play games. More info.
We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at the main library in downtown Arlington see map below for directions.
Would you like to socialize with other Mensans in your area on a regular basis? The Denton area Mensans have enjoyed a weekly coffee and food gathering for years at a local coffee shop. You may have noticed HOTDAM (Hang Out Together with Denton Area Mensans) in our newsletter calendar. They sometimes do other activities also such as museum visits and tours. You could do the same in your area. Weekly/monthly lunches/dinners might also be considered. If any of you are interested in trying to set up a Wichita Falls Area group, we need someone to be the local point of contact. If you want to be that contact please notify me at s.alsup(at)sbcglobal.net
You also have enough members in your areas to make this a viable option.
Granbury Area Mensans Social
(Granbury, Cleburne, Stephenville, Weatherford and surrounding area)
Jason Wrinkle, a new member of Mensa 76 residing in Stephenville, is interested in starting an area subgroup for members in Granbury, Cleburne, Stephenville, Weatherford and surrounding areas with a goal of having monthly social activities with other Mensa 76 members in the local area thereby providing shorter travel times. This could also provide an opportunity for carpooling to activities farther from home.
Jason has started contacting local members and will continue to make contact with those who have allowed American Mensa to provide their contact information.ason has volunteered to be the contact point and can be reached at jason.wrinkle(at)gmail.com or telephone 254-433-8137. He has also formed a facebook group which you can join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/GAMS76/. NOTE: Jason has already proposed an initial meeting with details subject to change as detailed on the subgroup's facebook page.
Mensa 76 hosts a variety of events to encourage social connections with other Mensans and help stimulate the minds of our members. Non-members are welcome to attend events to meet local Mensans, learn what Mensa is about, and get a feel for the local chapter before joining.
