Project Gratitude

Joseph Tynan School
The most pressing priority among our community projects is a push to raise money to construct a sensory room for the Tynan School in South Boston.
We increased our donation to Shelterbox in response to the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. Shelterbox provides emergency shelter and tools to families displaced by natural disasters,
Our speaker was Bill Paulson, our Immediate Past President, who shared his biography. Bill was born in New Jersey, where his father was a chemical engineer for BASF. Bill's Dad bought a factory making winter products, like antifreeze, in Lowell in '75, and Bill grew up working all kinds of factory, accounting and management jobs in the family business. But Bill hated chemistry in high school and really liked computer science and coding, so he got a Computer Systems Engineering Degree from the University of Massachusetts. He wrote software, made sales, worked as a consultant for Arthur Anderson, developed a technical magazine site, and redesigned websites. His first employer, GenRad, was bought by Terradygn. Later, he was working for Peoplesoft when it was acquired by Oracle..."enough". Bill's mother was a real estate agent, and he decided to pursue that field full time. Keller-Williams Realty is a challenging and supportive employer due to their solid training and coaching programs. They have an excellent customer relationship management system that helps make connections between buyers and sellers based on the characteristics of their property. That -in turn- helps the agents develop and manage a sales pipeline.
