The TCLC Executive Committee has accepted Ellen Gasiewski’s notice of retirement to be effective December 15th with dismay and gratitude: dismay at losing a valued coordinator and gratitude for decades of exemplary service.

Ellen has been the face and heart of TCLC for 25 years. It’s simply impossible to overstate her importance and influence. She is the one who gets things done; she is the go-to person for everyone involved in TCLC.  Gentle, resourceful, effective, creative, undaunted, something of a nudge, Ellen has kept the Cooperative and its officers, committee and SIG chairs and members productive and on track. Thank you, Ellen. We will miss you.
