Mensa is an international society that has only one unique qualification for membership. You must score in the top 2% of the population on a standardized intelligence test. Mensa is a nonprofit organization and has no religious or political affiliations. Our next dinner is has  been postponed until further notice due to Coronavirus health concerns. We will let you know when our next gathering will be. Mensa events are open to all Mensans and accompanied guests. Please feel free to bring a companion. Wednesday August 26th at 6 pm Please join us for the annual August Meet-in-the-Middle at: Brighton Recreation Area; 6360 Chilson Road; Howell,  MI  48843 810.229.6566 A state Recreation Passport is required. Follow signs to the picnic area and  look for the Mensa signs.  We will try to be at the Maple picnic shelter, but in case some other group has that one, there are three other picnic shelters and we hope a Wednesday night will not be too popular.  If you come early there are nice hiking and biking trails. This is a totally bring-your-own picnic.  Pack a picnic or BYO carryout. If you have some ice or bugspray or anything else you would like to share, bring it along and those who wish can do some careful sharing.  Lawn chairs would also be nice so we can "socially distance" more easily. Directions: From I-96, take the Latson Road exit #140 and go south.  In approximately 3 miles Latson road dead-ends into Chilson Road-turn left for about 2 miles. Pretty and shorter but more somewhat complicated from Ann Arbor exit at Silver Lake Road off US-23.  Slightly south off Whitmore Lake Road (the frontage road on the west) turn west on Winans Lake Road to Chilson Road.  You can also take M-36 west to Chilson Road which would take you by some restaurants with carry-out.
