San Diego Elders Club
June 12, 2011
Jerry Starnes arrived early. Roy Cook was also on time and was soon
joined by Ben Nance with the donuts. That was sure to set sweetness
to the TONKAWA gathering. Added to this was the attendance of our
greeter, Nellie Ruiz and El Bissara. El
and Dennis were up by Barona gathering fresh sage for the members.
The entire Tonkawa group gathered inside in gigantic good spirit.
Roy Cook provided the blessing for the TONKAWA members and visitors
this past Sunday.
Some of the
other members that didnt attend, no doubt, took advantage
of the bright summer warmth of the day to attend the Del Mar fair
or some other personal business.
1. Native American
GSO funding conference at Viejas will be presented by Don and Sylvia
Dinner this summer: August 14, 2011 at the Home Town Buffet on University
TONKAWA members keep the cooking pots bubbling and the happy smiles
ready. Chicken posole, fruit and macaroni salad with brown bread
and butter was in the category, comfort food. The dishes are passionately
delicious. Friendship bread baked by Nellie and the donuts were
a fine top off to the meal. These food selections are made, with
lots of love and care, for a bountiful luncheon and with good strong
hot TONKAWA coffee made for a fine gathering!
Maybe we will
see you and a friend (We are always recruiting Elders to be TONKAWA
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.
Our next TONKAWA
meeting is at noon July 10, 2011 at the IHRC offices, 4265 Fairmont
Ave. San Diego 92105. There is plenty of good parking with easy
access. Jerry adjourned the TONKAWA meeting at 1pm and we cleaned
up the room. It was a good time to be there, together for our Elders
