Monthly Gathering

CNJM holds a gathering each month on a variety of eclectic topics that have included: guitar-making, military police dog demonstration, NJ tombstone markings, revolutionary war mutinies, and quantum physics proving love (to name a few). These presentations are usually held on the 2nd Friday at various locations.

Members, guests, and potential members are all welcomed. Admission is now free.

Next gathering: New Time and Location!

Friday, July 14 -- Dinner at 7p.m., followed by the Gathering and comedy show at 8p.m. -- Denny’s, 752 Rte.18, East Brunswick, NJ

Potpourri, Just for Laughs

George will present some of the highlights of presentations that he has given at Snowballs over the past 20 years:

Your mother was right when she said, “Put on a happy face.” Researchers have produced irrefutable evidence that laughter and smiling are good for you.

You would be surprised how much fun and laughter we can find in exploring our quest to get healthy through exercise and diet.

A little bit of everything, the only thing we can guarantee is a fun-filled evening and great food at Denny’s.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: This month our presenter is George Scherer, a fellow Mensan and humorist who gives presentations to corporations and associations to help people enhance the quality of their personal and professional lives through the use of humor and laughter. He has performed in comedy clubs in the Greater New Jersey area, including Philadelphia and New York City. At one time he had been called the funniest man in the world. Of course, this was the opinion of his four-year-old granddaughter which may not be shared by the whole world.
