CHANGE – March meeting.  Unfortunately, we will have to postpone the tour of Reliable Biopharmaceutical Corporation until a future time.  Instead, we’d like to invite you to tour Herbaria, a natural soap manufacturer on the same date, March 27.

Herbaria manufactures soap using the cold soap making process, where a precise amount of lye is added to convert fatty acids in vegetable oils to soap.  Additional natural ingredients are added to produce a variety of scented and/or softening soaps.  

Herbaria is giving us a special after hours tour and will have staff stay over to do this.  Please register early so that they can make sure to have enough people available.  Details are as follows:

WHEN: Thursday, March 27th
             Arrival/Register:        5:00 – 5:30 p.m.
             Tour at Herbaria:       5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
             Dinner at Rigazzi's:   6:45 p.m. (4945 Daggett) - for menu

PLEASE RSVP by Monday, March 24th, to Miriam Press at or by calling Miriam at (314) 910-8427.  Please indicate if you will be attending dinner, as we need to let the restaurant know an approximate number. 

COST: The tour is free but dinner will be paid for by each member at the restaurant.  Rigazzi’s serves Italian food and is well known for their “Frozen Fishbowl” which can be filled with any cold beverage.
