Retired Women’s Club of Monsanto/Solutia



Home Page



The “Retired Women’s Club of Monsanto/Solutia” is a group of Lady Retirees from Monsanto and Solutia whose friendships have continued on from the beginning of the club.  Virginia Polen, Adele Wolf and Hazel Gilstrap were instrumental in the organization of the group that began somewhere in the late 70s.  Retirees from operations in St. Louis, Queeny, Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, Houston, and Solutia in Maryland Heights, are active in our membership at this time.  If we have missed an area or group, please let us know.


The group of Monsanto/Solutia retired ladies meet on the third Wednesday of every month between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  We occupy a private dining room adjacent to the Employee’s Cafeteria in “A” Building on the Monsanto East Campus.  Our Buffet Luncheon is catered by Guckenheimers who serves the “A” Building Cafeteria.  The menu includes a meat entrée, potatoes/rice, 2 vegetables, 3 salads, beverages and cookies for dessert.  Buffet is $15.00 person.


The Calling Committee of six ladies contacts each of our 90 members every month as a reminder of the upcoming luncheon.   The names of those attending are furnished to the Caterer.  Ladies enter via the “A” Lobby, and after signing in are escorted via elevator to the dining room. 


Special topics of interest related to the retirees are greatly accepted by the group.  Other suggestions also make for an entertaining afternoon luncheon. 


We welcome all retired ladies of Monsanto/Solutia to attend.
