THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS
Lynne Ashdown is author of the recently published “One American Woman Fifty Italian Men”, a journey of Cycling, Love and Will. She has studied music and art and is an adventurer. She recently proctored a Great Decisions, Syrian Refugee course on Foreign Policy Issues.
Having experienced the deep and personal loss of my husband Dave in 2009, I realized the importance of assistance during a difficult time. Support I did not always have.
Although surrounded by family and friends I still had to maneuver the obstacles, red tape and unforeseen responsibilities of life while also grieving.
My goal in developing Jacoby O’Brien Bereavement. Business Services is to share in what I have learned and to be a guide for others by offering confidential, competent and caring consultation to help families manage the business of life after loss.

President – Rotary Club of Tucson Sunrise
Moved here in 1970. I graduated from Flowing Wells High School and attended Pima Community College. I have a degree and background in computer science and worked in the field for a few years with Southwest Pumps. I was part of the team of programmers that created the software and hardware that we use every day to pay at the pump with our debit or credit card. For 3 years, I worked for M3 Engineering, with Dr. Henry Blair on the cutting edge of LIDAR sensing technology (A remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light) for Sandia Labs and JPL for the EPA. I was also the project lead with Dr.Blair on silicon wafer density measuring technology for Sandia Labs and creating the software program.
I was married with 2 small children, so I changed my career to be able to stay at home and not travel so much. I accepted a position managing a Physicians General Practice/Work Compensation practice for 5 years. In 1999 I went to work for Golden Pin Lanes bowling center as assistant manager and in 2009 became the General Manager. I have 3 sons, 28, 19 and 17. I have a granddaughter who is 7 years old.
I enjoy bowling, photography, traveling and one of my favorite things to do is flipping houses.
INTERNATIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES OF A ROTARIAN
As an international organization, Rotary offers each member unique opportunities and responsibilities. Although each Rotarian has first responsibility to uphold the obligations of citizenship of his or her own country, membership in Rotary enables Rotarians to take a somewhat different view of international affairs. In the early 1950's a Rotary philosophy was adopted to describe how a Rotarian may think on a global basis. Here is what it said:
"A world-minded Rotarian:
• looks beyond national patriotism and considers himself
Cragin students will master 21st century skills to become college and career ready,
through the integration of curriculum and exploration of media, dance, drama and music.
