Barbara, a past GDN President, organized Newton’s very first Earth Day Celebration, however she is mostly known for implementing recycling and waste management programs for the City, as well as her popular musical programs. Under her leadership, Green Decade’s Environmental Speaker Series featured a long list of impressive speakers on a wide array of environmental topics. Barbara is especially appreciated for producing approximately ninety programs in all! These programs have provided many educational opportunities that continue to inspire us to take steps to make our community a more sustainable place to live.

Brooke has shown a steadfast commitment for our organization by actively serving on our Board of Directors, most recently as Clerk. Her valuable experience, as a Past President of the Board of Aldermen, has assisted us in establishing priorities and planning strategies to achieve our environmental goals within the local community. Brooke has also been an especially outstanding facilitator, helping Green Decade in its ongoing collaboration with City leaders on a wide array of environmental issues, such as transportation and energy efficiency.
