About Town

A day at the fair!

By Greta Belanger deJong

The CATALYST Clean Air Solutions Fair, January 19, was one of the most engaging yet.

A huge thank you to all of our exhibitors, donors and volunteers (see next page). And thanks to all of you who showed up, learned new skills, shared ideas, and left with a greater sense of purpose!
