Catalyst Foundation presentation at Rotary

Thursday's Northfield Rotary lunch speaker was Caroline Nguyen Ticarro-Parker, co-founder and Executive Director of the Catalyst Foundation based here in Northfield. (Click photo to enlarge.)

Their mission is to "improve the lives of orphaned, abandoned and homeless children in Vietnam through educational scholarship programs and direct relief efforts. We also work to build cultural awareness and enrich the lives of children adopted from Vietnam."

Coincidence #1: While working in my corner office at the Blue Monday earlier this morning, a guy walks up to me to introduce himself, saying how much he appreciates Northfield.org.  His name: John Rinn. He's on the Advisory Board of the Catalyst Foundation.

Coincidence #2: John works at AC Nielson, the same place as N.org board member, tech committee member, and library board member Adam Gurno
