December 2014

It is December again, the month of the winter solstice, the end of the year, and of many celebrations. It is also time to organize the coming year. For NNJ Mensa, the first item of business will be to score hundreds of essays submitted for our scholarship awards. We need help! if you can do some judging please contact Nisha Zoeller, our scholarship chair.

We also need help with testing Mensa candidates. If you would be able to be a testing coordinator or a testing proctor, please contact me. There are a number of requirements to qualify, but American Mensa will help.

Of the members of the NNJ Mensa group more than 100 are gifted youth. Stephanie Glenn is working on organizing and coordinating activities for our younger members.

Lately our group activities have been primarily eating events. Our program director, Keith Armonatis, has been looking for some other activities of interest to the members. If there is something you would like to do please let him know.

We are encouraged to participate in the events of neighboring Mensa grpups. Their activities can be explored by checking out their local newsletters on the American Mensa website at
