The Senior Chemist Group of the Minnesota ACS was started by Lynn Hartshorn (Local Section Councilor) in January 2014. Since then we have been meeting about every two months for lunch (ordered from the menu, self-paying) at the Green Mill restaurant on Hamline and Grand Avenue in St. Paul. 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. So far themes for our meetings have included:
We are open to suggestions about other activities or volunteer 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 email@example.com
At the request of several members of our group, we will visit the Surly Brewery on Wednesday October 17th, beginning with a tour at 11am, (Paid by the MN ACS Seniors Group) and followed by lunch (self paying) in the restaurant at the brewery. More details including car pooling, directions, etc will be discussed at the September 12th lunch.
Please mark your calendars for the Minnesota Senior Chemists’ lunch meeting on Wednesday September 12th at 11:30am at The Green Mill Restaurant on Hamline and Grand Avenue. Dick Hartshorn (3M Retired) will give a short talk “”Adhesives that Cure by Chemical Reactions” . We will order from the menu. All senior chemists are welcome, including new members of the group, and guests. Parking is available on the street, and in the Green Mill lot about 50 yds west of the restaurant on the north side of Grand Avenue. Reservations should be made with Ken Latham, email: Klatham1@mnmicro.net.
