St. Louis Engineering Group
The St. Louis Monsanto/Solutia retired engineers group was formed in 1997.† It currently has 106 members.† Luncheon meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month in a private dining room at Bristolís Restaurant, 11801 Olive in Creve Coeur.†† During November and December, a single meeting is held on the first Tuesday in December.
Luncheon cost is $24.00 and includes soup or salad, fish or chicken, vegetables, biscuits and non-alcoholic drinks.† A cash bar is also available.† The tip is included in the meal price.† No reservations are required.† Prior to each luncheon, members are reminded of the meeting by email.
Meetings begin at 11:00 a.m. with an informal social gathering. The meal is served at 11:45 a.m. and is over at approximately 1:00 p.m. The purpose of the group is primarily social. Typical monthly attendance ranges from 30 to 45. The informal structure permits individual to mingle and renew old friendships.
Oldest group members retired about 1984.† The youngest are recently retired and still working part time at Solutia, Monsanto or for local engineering consulting firms.† Those still working at Solutia and Monsanto provide interesting insights into the workings of our former employers.
On several occasions when issues of common concern have arisen, such as the recent retiree medical insurance litigation, special committees have been created to report to the group and to take appropriate action.
All retired Monsanto and Solutia employees are welcome at the monthly luncheon.† For additional information contact:
