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!

Wednesday, October 25th

The MN ACS Senior Chemists will be meeting for lunch on Wednesday, October 25 at 11:30 am. We will meet somewhere that we have met several times before: the Green Mill Restaurant at 57 Hamline Avenue S., at the corner of Grand Avenue and Hamline Ave. in St. Paul. 

There is a very convenient parking lot just across Grand Avenue, next to the Sinclair gas station. We will meet in the private room (newly remodeled!). There will be a short after-lunch talk, not yet finalized. Please mark your calendars. All senior chemists (those over 50) are welcome, you do not have to be retired. This will be a self-paying lunch, we will order from the menu. Ken Latham and I (the organizers of the Senior Chemists Group of MN ACS) are looking forward to seeing you!

Lynn Hartshorn, Senior Chemists' Coordinator
