2014 Upcoming Events

Dear Membership,


We are going to be starting 2014 off STRONG.  


On Saturday, January 18, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 PM, we will be hosting a Forum on the Common Core at the Tewksbury Country Club.  We hope you will all attend.  We are expecting over 100 people. This is a very exciting event and will help educate the people of Tewksbury on the potential changes coming to our education system.  Ruth Chou & Don Ordway are coordinating this event and please contact them if you plan to attend and wish to help.  We have already collected about $750.00 from the membership to host this event.  More information will be published in the upcoming weeks.


During the month of January 2014, we need to sign-up the membership as delegates to the State Convention.  The last time we did this we had a fantastic turnout and we would like Tewksbury represented as well this time.   Please contact us at board@tewksburyGOP.org if you wish to be a delegate.


We are now collecting dues for 2014.  This is very important and helps us fund our activities.  Please fill out the form you can find online http://www.tewksburygop.org/membership.html , mail it to PO Box 446, Tewksbury, MA 01876, hand it to Carolyn Donovan at the Common Core Forum event, or come to the next meeting with a check.  Meetings are posted on our website www.tewksburyGOP.org.  Your support is always most appreciated.


2014 will be an exciting year for our membership.




Merry Christmas !!!!!!

TRTC Marches in the May 27, 2013 Memorial Day Parade

The TRTC was well represented in the Memorial Day Parade.  Holding the American flag is Dave Chou.  Holding the banner is Christiana Homeyer & Cheryl Homeyer.  Behind the sign is Dennis Chou, Pat Joyce, & Ruth Chou.  Behind the camera is Bob Homeyer.


We received a huge reception from the crowd.  The Republican support was quite heart warming.


Pat, Ruth, & Bob handed out 300 pocket US Constitutions by the time we were into the 1 mile mark.   We easily could have handed out 1,000 if we had them on hand.


It was a fun time.  Ruth Chou did a great job coordinating our participation.  Next year we hope to have even more people in the troop!!!

Chairman's Corner 3-09-13
The Candidates Forum today was a complete success.  We had 2 of the 3 GOP US Senatorial Candidates give wonderful speaches (one called late that he was tied up) as well as 10 of the 19 local candidates.  NECN, Lowell Sun, Town Crier, Tewksbury Patch, the Rabid Republican, DaTech Guy, and maybe others covered the event.  We filled nearly all of the 80 seats and many stood.  The Mass GOP sent representation, most of the Tewksbury Selectman attended; Jim Lyons (Commonwealth of Mass Rep) was there; Warren Carey (Chairman of the Tewksbury Democratic Committee) and his lovely wife Liz (former Town Clerk) attended.  The event was well attended and many Tewksbury Voters were there to listen to the speakers.  I would like to thank the TRTC members for their heavy involvement in this event.  Donna's Donuts donated the food (and TRTC members baked),  It was a great day for the TRTC and Tewksbury.  Thanks to all of you.  We completed the day ahead of schedule and under budget.  We are true Republicans.

New Chairman Comments

I would like to thank the members of the Tewksbury Republican Town Committee for electing me Chairman.  The photo is courtesy of the Tewksbury Patch from one of the Tewksbury LIbrary Trustee Meetings.

The direction of the Committee will not deviate from prior direction.  The Committee will continue to advance membership, public service, and Republican values.  Those values include the Constitution, the Republic, & Freedom.  I tell people all over the country that I am a Massachusetts Republican.  I believe that people should have a good place to live, a good job, a good education, good healthcare, and a good meal everyday, I happen to believe they should have to work for it.  When those items are not avaliable for individual reasons we as a society need to assist to help make that a possibility.  We The People need to be We The People.

I hope that We The People will stand together and make this great country an even better country and stand against the socialism that is becoming prevalent.

Tewksbury is a conservative hard working town.  We have been an oasis in a sea of liberalism.  I am proud of this town and am honored to lead the Republican Party here.  Bob Homeyer

Outgoing Chairman's Messages
2-03-13 -

Our next meeting and the last as your Chair is on Feb. 4, 2013 at 7:00PM at the U.S. Bunting Club 449 Boylston Street Lowell, MA on the Tewks. line. To all of my friends, it is with great sadness that I am stepping down as the TRTC Chair. I have about 25 years as a TRTC member under my oversized belt. Possibly 20-22 as your Chairman. I am a candidate for Vice Chair which will allow me to spend mor...e time offering the Party suggestions for moving forward. A recent blog writen by Nicky Natteau (Associate TRTC member) and myself attracted 135 comments on Tewksbury Patch. "You may be a Conservative" listing 15 Conservative goals. We reached many people driving home important points regarding the Conservative movement. It was a very civil discussion. We will continue to lose if we continue to repeat past mistakes. We must be united and bold. We are the Party of ideas, we must not fear or retreat from our positions, we must explain them. America needs to embrace them if we expect to return to the position we once recieved comfort from. May God bless the greatest country in the world and its people. We are the light and we must shine.



The Tewksbury Republican Town Committees next meeting will be held at the U.S Bunting Club on March 11th at 7:00 PM. This location could change to suit the TRTC agenda. The TRTC Web Site will be updated as required. Visit our new Web Site for updates: (tewksburygop.org)
