Tobosa’s Busy Season
By: Rosy Rubio
Wow…. I can’t believe it’s already July 1, 2019! Where did the time go? We are entering the second half of 2019 and always the busiest time of the year for Tobosa. It seems we take time to regroup and reenergize during the early part of the year to hit the road running during the second part of the year. What do I mean about the busiest part of the year for Tobosa? Let me share with you what significant events are coming for the remainder of 2019 for Tobosa
It’s the time of the year for Tobosa to welcome the Journey of Hope team. Tobosa has been welcoming and sponsoring the Journey of Hope group for over 30 years. This group of young gentlemen bikes across the USA, educating on disabilities ending in Washington DC at summer’s end. The Journey of Hope will arrive during Tobosa’s annual Summer Bash held on July 3, 2019, at the Eagles Lodge with a cookout, music, entertainment, games, and other activities. The Summer Bash is an event held to show appreciation to all involved with the successes of Tobosa. It’s a big family event for individuals supported, their families, Tobosa’s workforce and their families. It’s bound to be a great time. Please join us.
Tobosa’s annual Strategic Planning Retreat is scheduled for August 1-3, 2019. The timing is perfect for the retreat to help with the rejuvenation of the group participating. Board of Director members, management team members, and Staff Committee members will convene at Riverstone Ranch, our home away from home, to focus on the ambitious goals set at the 2018 retreat. This year we are looking at a very new evaluation method to measure our successes. We will also welcome Mr. Eleazar Cano to facilitate the team building session. In addition, Mr. Cano will focus on a story sharing activity the impact of Emotional Intelligence training from the past seven years has had on the participants. The retreat is a great way to get to know your co-workers in a relaxing environment and to establish lasting relationships. Our annual retreat is always an event we look forward to as we are this year.
As we immediately come back from the retreat, Tobosa has a tremendous endeavor to complete. After 23 years of residing at the Summit address, Tobosa Administration will be relinquishing the facility to the Los Pasitos Early Intervention Program to accommodate their expanding program. With this move, a great idea has materialized for a Tobosa Children’s Campus: Los Pasitos Early Intervention and Little Steps Learning Center will be located within the campus. We are so excited about the move, so stay tuned for further developments of this great vision!!!
August 24, 2019, is the scheduled date for the14th Annual Tobosa Classic golf tournament. New Mexico Military Institute will be hosting the event this year. It will be a fun-filled event with door prizes, trophies, great food, great drinks, and great company. If you get an opportunity, please join us with the 8 a.m. shotgun start.
Your participation will help with Tobosa’s Children Campus!
September 21, 2019, is tentatively scheduled for the annual Tobosa Awards Celebration. Tobosa will be celebrating 41 years of providing services to children, families, and adults in Chaves County. As usual, the celebration will recognize years of services for adults and years of employment for members of the workforce. We will celebrate an Employee of the Year and an Achievement Award for an individual that has seen great successes this year.
The remainder of the year will consist of our annual Thanksgiving Celebration on November 26, 2019, Christmas events, and birthday celebrations. Please stay tuned for upcoming dates for these final events.
