Welcome to the home page of Tallahassee Area Mensa!
Tallahassee Area Mensa a local chapter of the High IQ Society, American Mensa. The Tallahassee
area serves Florida from the Apalachicola River east through Taylor County including part of
Madison County and even a bit of Dixie County. Our area is also the only area in all of Florida,

Happy March! We have a new and fun event planned for the month of March - a group-sponsored outing to
the Escape Room in Tallahassee. We will go on March 10 in the early afternoon. There are a number of
different scenarios from which to choose, and each escape room holds 7-8 people. We must make advance
reservations, so this is a strictly advance RSVP event. Please go to this site:
https://breakoutgames.com/tallahassee/ read through
the different scenarios they offer, and contact me to let me know which scenario you wish to attend,
give both a first choice and a second choice, and the number of people who will attend. Members are free
and may bring a guest whose admission will also be covered. If we have enough participants, we will
reserve multiple rooms. Again, this is an advance reservation event, so we will have to have a firm RSVP
and head count by March 3. Reservations and preferences have started coming in, don't miss your chance
to enjoy this fun event! Questions? Contact me! This could be really fun!
Question for all of you - are you a Facebook user? Do you think our group needs a Facebook presence?
Would you be interested in being involved in setting up or maintaining a Facebook page for our local
group? Several groups in our region have a Facebook page, and the fact we do not have one has recently
been raised. So I am seeking your feedback and thoughts on how much interest there is for us to have one
for our group. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
As of this writing, we are still enduring widespread flu outbreaks, temperature swings in the weather,
and rainy Sundays. I hope you have all escaped the flu, have dressed in layers appropriate to the weather,
and been able to enjoy your weekends in spite of the rainy Sundays. My azaleas are already starting to
bloom, so I expect we will get another freeze, which seems to be the pattern of recent years. Will March
come in like a lion this year? Time will tell.
Hope to see you at an event soon!
