What we’re about
Members of American Mensa range in age from 2 to 102. They include engineers, homemakers, teachers, actors, athletes, students, and CEOs, and they share only one trait — high intelligence. To qualify for Mensa, they scored in the top 2 percent of the general population on a standardized test. All our activities are open to those curious about Mensa. (Non-members may attend up to three events before they join Mensa.) Come see what we are about.

- IN PERSON Mensa Monthly GatheringAll Souls Unitarian Church, Indianapolis, IN
PROGRAM: Our annual Holiday Party Pitch-In Dinner and Gimmee-Grabbee Gift Exchange
Doors open at 7 pm; we’ll eat at 7:30. Meat, bread, beverages, and tableware will be provided. For the pitch in: If your last name starts with A – G, please bring a side dish (vegetable, fruit, or salad); if your last name starts with H – Z, please bring an appetizer or dessert.
The gift exchange after dinner is always a hoot. We call it “Gimmee Grabbee” – when it’s your turn, you may choose a gift that hasn’t been selected yet or take one from someone who has already chosen. Presents remain wrapped until everyone has chosen. People choose based on the appearance of the package and/or what they think might be inside. Every year, there are a few imaginatively wrapped presents that are the hit of the party! Participation in the gift exchange isn’t required, but you’ll be missing out on some of the fun if you don’t. Suggested price range for a gift is $10-$15.
Please RSVP to Jan (email@example.com, 317-431-3500) or Teresa (firstname.lastname@example.org, 317-430-1761) by Wednesday, Dec. 6th, so we’ll know how much meat to buy.
We typically have 15-30 members and guests in attendance. Members $7, Nonmembers $10, Children ages 6-12 $5, Children under 6 free. Entrance fee waived if you bring food to contribute.
