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

This event has been CANCELLED.
