This week in Rotary
On February 20, 2020 at the Regular Thursday Meeting, Rotary Del Sol honored retiring member Joe Rose in celebration of his long and dedicated career as a Rotarian.  Joe was a long term member of Rotary of Carlsbad before helping to Charter Rotary Del Sol. President Dave Simon dressed up to impersonate Winston Churchill who Joe Rose loved to quote.  Dave gave Joe several books of history to read in his spare time.  Several Rotarians gave anecdotes about Joe and his long career as a Rotarian.  Joe thanked Del Sol Rotarians and told them how much he will miss them.   Joe and his wife Ann are moving to Abilene, Texas to be near their family.  They will be sorely missed.  We will especially miss Joe's wit and humorous quotes.  
Monique Jacobson of Break The Cycle Squared, guest speaker on February 20 with Retiring Charter Member Joe Rose and President Dave Simon.
Monique Jacobson was the guest speaker and spoke  about Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Abuse.  Monique was a Cabinet Secretary in New Mexico under Governor Susanna Martinez.  Monique was Tourism  Secretary for  four years and helped create the brand "New Mexico True".  Born in Taos, Monique is a graduate of  the Wharton School.  
After her stint as Secretary of Tourism, Monique took over the Children, Youth and Family Department.  As head of CYFD she headed a department of 2000 employees dealing with issues of abuse and neglect.  After leaving that office she started BTC Squared working to break the Cycle of Abuse and Neglect in New Mexico.  One of her projects is a series of "Baby Showers" for new parents helping them cope with  the changes in their lives children bring.
