October, 2016

October was the eighth month in the old Roman Calendar. October retained its name (from the Latin octo meaning "eight") after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans. The 7th annual picnic at Van Saun Park was pictured in the electronic version of September's IMprint and the photographs are shown on our www page (http://www.nnjmensa.org). My grandson, Bobby, seemed to have a good time. Bill Holzmann did a great job of organizing it and grilling franks and hamburgers! Particularly noteworthy was the large number of young Mensans present. The committee estimated that at least 60 members were present at some time during the day. Thanks, Bill, for another great event.

Activities for our gifted youth are ongoing. Check with Stephanie Janssens on Facebook or email her at stillstephanieglenn@gmail.com for further information.

Our next executive committee meeting is scheduled for Sunday, November 27, 2016, at 1:00 pm.

The next Mensa annual gathering will be July 5-9, 2017, at Hollywood, Florida.
