Diane Huckabee assumed leadership of Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary last month after 12 years with Rotary.

She has stated two main challenges for her presidential year. One is “keeping up with all of the Club’s projects.” The other is “helping our community know more about what DMSB Rotary does to benefit our community and the world.”

Asked what her best moments in Rotary have been, she said, “Working to make our 2014 DMSB Rotary Bocce Tournament last March so successful that we could fund our major beneficiaries — Reality Changers and Just in Time for Foster Youth — and our many local and international service projects even more than in the past.”

In addition to Rotary activities, Diane has served on the boards of the San Diego Blood Bank, UCSD Bannister House, Balboa Park’s House of Hospitality, and others. A certified financial planner with Edward Jones, she earned her finance degree from San Diego State University and served clients for 39 years. She enjoys traveling with her CPA husband and two sons.

Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary meets Fridays over breakfast for fellowship, planning, and informational presentations at Morgan Run Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, just east of Del Mar. Contact Paul Butler at 619-559-3213 or, or see
