TRC Members
Meet the hardworking volunteers of the Tewksbury Recycling Committee!  Each person brings something different to the table and each time we get a new member, the creative energy starts to flow again, so drop in at one of our meetings (see About Us) and bring some ideas with you.  You can also contact one of the members using the information provided below and we’ll do our best to answer your questions!

1082009_95610_6.jpgLoretta Ryan, Chairperson
Loretta has been a Tewksbury resident since 2003 and joined the TRC just months after moving into town.  Married, with 3 school-aged children, she is very involved in volunteering in the school system.  Loretta is most interested in finding ways to educate the children and staff in the school system on ways to recycle. "The true way to a better future is through our children."

1082009_95027_2.jpgJae Gray
Member since 1991.  Jae provides all-around support wherever and whenever it is needed.  She considers herself a compulsive helper, so if you ask her about anything, she’ll do her best to find an answer.

Jae’s recycling efforts began during World War II when so many things were rationed or not available because they were needed for the “war effort.”  At the same time, it seemed that everyone knew and recited the following poem:

             “Use it up.  Wear it out.  Make it do, or do without.”

As a teenager, Jae heard many adults saying that she would eventually realize that she can’t save the world.  She’s still trying to prove them wrong.  For that reason, Jae is a member of several environmental groups, saving the world one step at a time, one piece at a time.
