Hahn, who was appointed to the new position of NPCM president early in 2002.
Until now, Hahn points out, the NPCM has met its operating expenses in part by drawing on contributed funds and the interest on its endowment.
The NPCM is a nonprofit institution that describes itself as "dedicated to preserving the past, addressing the present, and fostering the future of plastics through education and public awareness." Established in 1982, the NPCM opened its headquarters at Leominster, Massachusetts, in 1992.
The first presentations of "Plastics Is My Bag" are taking place at NPCM headquarters, but Hahn says the program will eventually become part of the NPCM's traveling PlastiVan repertoire.
The NPCM's three PlastiVans travel throughout the United States, teaching students, educators, and the public about the chemistry, history, processing, and environmental issues involving plastics.
Information on the museum may be obtained by calling the NPCM at (978) 537-9529.

Headquartered in Leominster, Mass., the National Plastics Center & Museum (NPCM) has announced the October 1999 unveiling of two of its two newest exhibits.
The second exhibit is a selection of the works of sculptor Mico Kaufman, who, says the NPCM, recently "discovered plastics as a versatile and viable medium for expressing his creative visions." These artworks have been created from "slag" coming off plastics extruders.
