TONKAWA San Diego Elders Club
2011 TONKAWA minutes:
Violet Tunohun arrived on time and since many were ready to eat
she opened the luncheon before noon. Small in number the Tonkawa
group gathered in gigantic good spirit. Portuguese, Indian captive,
Manuel Flores provided the blessing for the TONKAWA members and
visitors this past Sunday.
Some of the
other members that didnt attend were not in the best of health
or busy with friends and relatives and others, no doubt, took football
advantage of the bright Indian summer warmth of the day.
Cooper joined the group and told of her journey from Colorado to
New Mexico and Arizona. It started very sadly with a death in the
family but the vistas and people she met on the trip back lightened
the load on her heart. We were glad she came in and was able to
share her sorrows. We sincerely add all our condolences.
about Manuel and Celia and their participation with Fr. Joes
holiday dinners. Santa and Mrs. Claus had to make an emergency visit
to the hospital. They got priority service. Celia is still recovering
and trying to get stronger for their next cruise. In the conversation
the topic continued about the possibility of a craft project for
our elders came up Dolls in tribal and international outfits.
TONKAWA members keep the cooking pots bubbling and the happy smiles
ready. The dishes are passionately delicious. These food selections
are made with lots of love and care for a very festive New Year
luncheon: pasta chicken casserole, Greek green salad and sides of
macaroni and flat pretzels with good strong hot TONKAWA coffee made
for a fine luncheon!
Our next TONKAWA
meeting is at noon Febuary13, 2011 at the IHRC offices, 4265 Fairmont
Ave. San Diego 92105. There is plenty of good parking with easy
access. Violet and Roy put away the table and cleaned up the room.
It was a good time to come together for our Elders NEW YEAR TONKAWA
Maybe we will
see you and a friend (We are always recruiting Elders to be TONKWA
members!). It is always nice to see new members and guests drop
in and are encouraged to return. This is a real nice down home meeting
to attend. We are also very pleased to enjoy the regular attendance
of TONKAWA along with community guests and family member.
