The deer that was rescued Saturday morning from the icy Charles River was later euthanized due to hypothermia, the Dedham Fire Department said. Paul and Martha Podolski, of 131 Jenney Lane, called the fire department shortly after 11 a.m. when they saw a deer stuck in the icy water behind their home. "He (Paul) went out to his car to leave to his

hockey game. He heard a splash in the water and saw a deer stuck," Martha Podolski told the Dedham Transcript on Monday, Jan. 28. Deputy Fire Chief James Neilan said firemen used a rescue sled to retrieve the deer from the water – a process that took about three hours. "It was probably 17 degrees out and they were up to the neck in water," Podolski said. "I was really worried when the firemen were in the water." After retrieving the deer

from the water, firefighters took the animal to the basement of Podolski’s brother’s home, 129 Jenney Lane, and placed the deer near a woodstove for about 45 minutes. "We had a big comforter over him and (firemen) were rubbing his fur," Podolski said. "The deer was definitely improving, but he wasn’t able to get up on his own." The deer was taken to the Dedham branch of the Animal Rescue League of

Nine Riverdale Elementary School students eagerly placed three worms on a wet paper towel and

another three worms on a dry paper. The goal? To find out whether earthworms prefer moist or dry areas. “Do you see any difference between these

guys and these guys?” Dr. Douglas Crandall asked students on Tuesday, Jan. 29, as he pointed to the two different papers. It turns out earthworms prefer moist settings.

Luckily for the students, most of them had guessed right prior to the experiment. “We’re learning about

Spreading the joy around
Catching Joy aims at bringing the spirit of volunteerism to kids

UPC (A) General

You got it, give it. That’s the simple premise of Catching Joy, a nonprofit aimed at promoting volunteerism at a young

age. Brighton residents and mother and son team Joy Olaes Surprenant and Maxwell Surprenant, 9, share a blueberry muffin one Monday morning at a Dedham coffee house.

Arriving an hour into the interview, Maxwell has managed to nibble away more than half of the muffin as Joy shares the mission behind her work of almost 5 years. “Catching Joy’s premise

is we believe that we are making a great difference and brining joy to others,” Joy said. “We believe the joy comes back to the giver in fullness. We believe

Representatives from Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts presented an overview of its services to Dedham’s Sustainability Advisory Committee and explored the possibility of partnering with the town. The town’s Environmental Coordinator Virginia LeClair secured $1,600 of the mitigation funds from the construction of Legacy Place to form a green business program. She had already used the funds to create materials such as a logo and checklist when LeClair and the town’s Economic Director Karen O’Connell realized it might be more effective to partner with the Cambridge-based nonprofit than start from scratch. Members voiced that a green program would attract customers, save money, and make Dedham a healthier place to live and work. It can even increase employee retention, according to Managing Director of Sustainable Business Network Katrina Kazda. “We looked at other communities across the country and what they were doing, we met with different consulting companies, and then we stumbled across this program. It was really what we wanted to create

it is contagious and catchy, which is why we haven’t stopped.” Almost weekly, the entirely volunteer-run nonprofit organizes a variety of family-friendly events. “We do collections, collect toys and art supplies,” Maxwell pauses and thinks, “and sing in nursing homes, cheer on marathon runners.” When not in school or participating in sports, his nights and weekends are spent with his family helping others because, “we know doing good for others makes us feel happy.” This makes Joy proud. She believes that if you teach volunteerism at a young age it will carry the child to adulthood. “Start with kids and then they will have it their whole life,” she said. “Start with families, and it will become solidified and strong within the home.” Week-by-week, Joy, founder and director of Catching Joy, actively works to bring this message to the community. “The concept of Catching Joy is that we link up with different nonprofits or causes and find a hands-on project that young kids with their families can do,” Joy said. “It isn’t just families bringing their kids and they are running around and playing … If they are coloring then the parents are writing the messages. But together they are all doing things.” At the Blue Bunny Bookstore in Dedham Square, Catching Joy recently organized a hats, mittens, scarves, and coats collection for Solutions At Work. Residents joined the High Street business SheepSkate and the Dedham Junior Women’s Club to fill baskets for the charity. Keeping with the hands-on project angle, kids decorated mittens that will be attached to the donation and distributed as a way to further spread the joy. The crafts is Maxwell’s favorite part of Catching Joy. “I like making the posters,” Maxwell said. A skilled artist, Maxwell will often take the lead at the various events encouraging kids to take time in crafting the card, poster, or bookmark. “We donate the cards with the collection or sometimes the cards are the main thing,” Maxwell said. “We collect books sometimes and with the books we donate the cards or make bookmarks. They will get a card and the book and it will make them really happy.”

“In September 2013, we will celebrate our fifth year,” Joy said. “We launched it on Maxwell’s fifth birthday at Fenway Park.” Joy said that in 2008, she asked party guests to donate to Catching Joy instead of giving presents. “(We told them) that we are starting Catching Joy as a way to give young kids and their families the opportunity to feel the joy of giving,” she said. At the first event, participants made cards and posters for the Boston-based charity Birthday Wishes. From that event Catching Joy caught on. They support all of the holiday events for the Ritz-Carlton of Boston. In December, Catching Joy organizes an ornament-making table at the “Nutcracker” in Boston. Joy staffs the tables with volunteers and families have the opportunity to make ornaments to hang on Christmas trees in the lobby. Often more ornaments are made than needed, so Joy explained she gets other companies to donate trees that were decorated and donated to shelters. “We work with over 60 nonprofits and have reached over 6,000 kids,” Joy says and then jumps to the next project. Her mind doesn’t stop. “We value what even one child can do because that ripple effect is so great.” In Dedham, Catching Joy has partnered with Discover Music and Art, The North Star Children’s Ramble, Dedham Jr. Women’s League, Jack & Eric’s Pirate Lemonade stand, the Dedham Farmers Market – and that is just to name a few. She’s also worked with Boston College and students at Lasalle College to teach the basics of running a nonprofit. Two years ago a class at Lasalle organized Catching Joy’s

winter fair. “Lasalle put on an entire fundraiser from beginning to end,” she said and added that they raised about $7,000. Recently, Microsoft selected Catching Joy to be a community partner. They will be responsible for running tables at different events, but keeping the message of volunteerism. “We want to let other

people know (about helping others),” Maxwell excitedly said. “So they can make other people feel happy. That’s twice the people. When they make other people feel happy, they make themselves feel happy.” More information on Catching Joy can be found online at http://catchingjoy.org/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook. com/catchingjoy.
