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:

Friday, January 11 -- Semiannual Gala Games Night!!! Dinner at 6:30; games begin at 8

CNJM is once again sponsoring our semiannual Gala Games night. Java Joe, a consummate gamer, will be your host. Come and join CNJM for a night filled with great games!

As always, guests are very welcome.

Join in and learn a new game you haven’t played before or you can play ‘classic favorites’ that will also be available. Java Joe will supply playing cards and ‘classic favorites’ such as Scrabble, Go, and Mille Bornes. He will bring games from his collection which includes games played at Mensa Mind Games (MMG) over the years.

You are encouraged to bring your own favorites to share with other Mensans. Feel free to contact Java Joe if there is a particular game you have always wanted to try—who knows, he might actually have it!
