Our local Monthly Gathering (MG) is usually held at 7:30 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month, with the exception of months when other major events are planned. The MGs feature speakers on a variety of subjects and are open to the public. If you’re a member, we hope you’ll come to the MG. If you’re not a member and are thinking of joining, please come to a monthly gathering and see what we’re all about.
The locations will sometimes vary, but we currently meet at the Shoreline Fire Department’s Training Center. Our large meeting room is on the ground floor, and ample free parking is available.

Monthly Gathering, March 15th
Come to the Monthly Gathering (MG) at 7:30 pm on March 15th to hear our own Susan Brown talk about NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) launch! MAVEN’S mission is to investigate the Martian atmosphere to ascertain why water is no longer on Mars, although current state-of-the-art scientific knowledge says it used to be. Susan’s brother-in-law, Dr. Bruce Jakosky, is Principal Investigator (head mission scientist) for MAVEN. She and Ed Lucas were VIP guests for the launch at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida last November.
You don’t need to be a Mensa member to attend the Monthly Gathering; it’s open to the public, so we hope you’ll come and get acquainted with some of our members.
The MWW Steering Committee will hold a meeting in the same location at 5:00 pm, immediately preceding the MG, and all Mensa members are welcome to observe.
