It is with great sadness but also some relief that we have announced the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Gathering in Kansas City, Mo. This is the first time in our history we have had to take this step. We have had an AG every year since the first North America Mensa Annual Gathering in 1963.
There’s great sadness because we will all miss seeing our friends and family from across the country, as well as the hugs, camaraderie, great speakers, and more. Please join me in commending Tabby Vos and her AG Committee for their great efforts preparing for this event.
DO YOU NEED FABRIC FOR MASKS?
NHM has several dozen t-shirts left over from past RGs. Now that CDC guidelines have changed to recommend that we all wear fabric masks when leaving our homes, we are happy to offer them to our members & friends who may not have anything already around your home with which to make masks.
They currently live at my house in Bow. Please PM me, email me or call/text the number below if you need one or more shirts. I can package them in zip-loc bags and leave them on my front porch for pick-up. I can also mail/ship to you although I may have to ask you to reimburse the postage/shipping cost (like many, I have no income coming in at this point).
Here is a link to CDC instructions for several mask options, including no-sew. Of course, there are many other patterns our there as well.
Everyone, please do the best you can to stay safe and help everyone else stay safe!
