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, May 8th

The Senior Chemists will be meeting on Wednesday, May 8, so save the date! We will visit the Minneapolis Institute of Art and talk to a conservator about the science of conservation. We will meet around 10am and have lunch together after the talk. This will be our first meeting of 2024, so we hope you can all come! Senior Chemists events are open to any ACS or MNACS member who is 55 or older - you don't have to be retired. More details to follow soon.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again!

Lynn Hartshorn and Ken Latham
