The Senior Chemist Group of the MN ACS was started by Lynn Hartshorn (Local Section Councilor) in January 2014. Since then we have been meeting about every two months for lunch. The idea of founding this new group is to provide an additional daytime meeting possibility for seniors (and others). The objective is largely for social interaction. However, we also help seniors find volunteer opportunities, and have informal 20-minute talks about chemistry and other sciences. We are open to suggestions about other activities or volunteers for talks. All are welcome, both retired chemists and not retired, and guests are always welcome. Please join us!

If you are interested in attending the next lunch, email Lynn Hartshorn at lghartshorn@stthomas.edu.

The holiday lunch for the Senior Chemists will be on Wednesday, December 4th at 11:30 am at the M. St Cafe (in the basement of the St. Paul Hotel, 350 Market St., St. Paul). It will be a buffet lunch; we will choose from the sideboard. The lunch will cost about $20 per person (including tax and gratuity per person) but the Senior Chemists group will reimburse everyone for $10 so the lunch will only cost about $10. The total bill will be paid altogether, so please bring $10 cash. If you park in the Lawson Ramp (see Google Maps, it is on Wabasha and 5th St.) and bring your ticket to the cafe for validation, you will get 2 hours free parking.

We will have a book exchange. Please bring a book that you have enjoyed to give to someone else, and be prepared to say a few words about it.

RSVP by Friday, November 29th to Lynn at lghartshorn@stthomas.edu. There is a limit of 30 people. Guests are welcome!

We look forward to seeing you!
