Jump into a bold New Year with Catalyst Ranch’s 2012 Calendar

2012 marks a landmark in Catalyst Ranch history – the company’s 10th year of business. In celebration of this milestone, our Gala Girl, Lauren Smith, created a colorful calendar showcasing the many faces of our company mascot Pogo. He’s a world traveler and creative spirit that will brighten your cubicle or desk. Download the entire collection HERE. (All that fab takes a minute to download.)

In Chinese culture, January 23rd starts the Year of the Dragon. This powerful animal has represented emperors for their passion, drive, colorful personalities, dominance and daring approach of challenges. Chicago’s Chinatown is celebrating the Lunar New Year and their centennial anniversary on January 29th. With so much to celebrate the Chinatown Chamber of Commerce will surely have some great festivities planned.


While you are out in Chinatown, be sure to stop and admire The Nine Dragon Wall. I have passed this monument so many times and never realized its significance. The Nine Dragon Wall is modeled after a wall in BeiHei Park in Beijing. It includes over 500 smaller dragons and is only one of three such replicas outside of China. Learn more here.

Happy New Year!
