August 2017 Events

Temperance - Friday, August 4, 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!

Held at:

August Dinner Meeting - Sunday August 20, 6:00 pm

On August 21, 2017, the "Eclipse Across America" can be seen in its totality in parts of Tennessee. This is a rather rare sight indeed, as the next time a total solar eclipse will be visible in the US is almost 7 years from now! Come hear about the eclipse at a presentation by Doreen Forsythe, Solar System Ambassador, at the dinner meeting on August 20th. She will be speaking about the eclipse, and teaching the audience where, when, and how to watch a solar eclipse safely.

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!

Held at:
