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

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 19th, at the Green Mill Restaurant in St. Paul. Plans for a speaker are not yet finalized. More details to come.

Other plans for 2020 include a possible visit to the new Bell Museum, more informal talks, and a possible visit to college/university research labs. If you would like to join, have suggestions for meeting locations, or would like to give an informal 20-minute talk, please email Lynn at lghartshorn@stthomas.edu.
