May is another exciting month in which to embrace traditional roots – and, of course, there are May flowers – before other outdoorsy adventures really start to get warming up. In a sense, May is like a goddess (Maia) for all of us to anticipate and to appreciate her natural beauty. Traditionally, one major event in which to participate is graduation (or Commencement) from whichever school you might be attending. Indeed, May is ‘grow time’ so don’t let it slip passed you.

Among all the social events happening in May here in Mid-America Mensa land are these following few for members to consider joining in on:

First, Walkabout KC is going to Loose Park on Saturday, May 4th at 11:00 am, for walking through the famous rose garden. As noted earlier in April’s News & Notes, we’ll see if there are any May flowers after a month of showers! Check the May Mension for more details (and the right contact info) about attending this next walkabout event.

Second, Ethnic Eats has a new contact person (Paul) if exploring a wide variety of cuisines and atmospheres is on your plate. What’s next on Paul’s schedule for Ethnic Eats is (hint:) Salvadoran on Saturday, May 11th at 1:00 pm. Check the May Mension for more delectable details (and the right contact info) about attending this next dinner event.

Also, in May, the Full Moon SciFi SIG will explore the Ghost in the Shell franchise. Join in for a bit of Japanese immersion and don’t forget to check out the FullMoonSciFi Yahoo group where you can rub elbows with other alpha-nerds. Check the May Mension for more details (and the right contact info) about attending this extraordinary event.
