ND Mensa has announced the 2021 RG in Valley City for August 2021.
Postponed in 2020 due to Covid, the original venue and plans will remain the same for 2021. Find out more, including registration information, on the RG page.
Join our monthly Zoom social hours!
They are scheduled on the first Sunday of each month at 5:00 pm Central. We are partnering with South Dakota Mensa and the joint meetings are now called Mensa Dakota Territory Social Hour. Anyone interested can contact James Stiles for more information.
It was announced, in August 2020, that North Dakota Mensa has won the Ruby Jewel Award in Class V (for groups of 125 or fewer members). This recognition of our local group's achievements is two levels higher than what was awarded in the past couple of years.
We sincerely thank all our members who have stayed with us or have recently joined. We look forward, as a group, to being more active in the coming year, as hopefully conditions will improve. And should you wish to contribute in any way as a volunteer, just let us know. Many roles are available, and your fresh ideas will always be welcome.
We are pleased to announce Sheila Christensen as the new editor of the Prairie Dawg newsletter. After a long hiatus it will be great to have the Prairie Dawg publishing again.
Content is always welcome for publication and can be submitted to Sheila via email.
Thank you, Sheila, for volunteering!
