Our inaugural 50/60/70-year brunch on July 14th at Chris' Family Restaurant shone with pride for chemistry! Everyone that attended thanked the section for doing it. There was a lot of storytelling, laughter, and fun. The only complaint heard was it was the first time happening, they wished we had done something like it before this! One attendee commented afterward by email: "Thank you and your colleagues for organizing the wonderful gathering of the local OLDIES of the ACS members. I enjoyed the conversation with several of them. I look forward to receiving the group photo and their email addresses. Wishing you all the best for a wonderful summer." Share the moment with these pictures of the event.more
