Personal Remembrances

We are sorry to report Chicago Area Mensa member Gene Edlin passed away on Tuesday, 12 January. Many members will have known him for his involvement with CAM from its very earliest days. He served as our second LocSec and hosted the weekly Downtown Lunch for many years. This may be the longest running regular event anywhere in Mensa, and we will continue it in his honor. May his memory be for a blessing.
