February 2015

It is February, the shortest month of the year. And the month whose name means "purification."

As a local group, we need help with testing Mensa candidates. If you would be able to be 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 under the age of 18. Stephanie Glenn , our Gifted Youth Coordinator, is working on organizing and coordinating activities for our younger members. She has established a facebook group for our gifted youth. Email Stephanie to join the group. Check it out at She has organized a number of events so far and is planing a MAM Gallery Studio tour and activity for Sunday, March 1st, at 2:00 pm, at the Montclair Art Museum. On Saturday, February 7th, she has organized "Exploring Sony Wonder Tech Lab" at 2:00 pm. Again, the details of these events and many others are on facebook. Mensa for Kids is a good internet resource at

Our program director, Keith Armonaitis, 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.
