April 14, 2013 - Noon
Cook opened the doors early to greet the TONKAWA early birds. Jerry Starnes lugged
his pot luck dish down the long green corridor of the Indian Human Resource Center.
They were followed by: Jean Vigenault, Vickie Gambala, Ben Nance Dennis Charette
and Gwen Cooper. Overcast and cooler weather with a trace of rain extended the
winter season and might have been contributing factors in the very light TONKAWA
blessing today is by Roy Cook. With the prayer goes our wishes for and the health
of our absent members near and far away and also family and friends having a hard
time. Prayer is always particularly good at this stage of our elders life
with medical procedures and medication prescriptions dominating much of the current
life experience of the members. We took note of our greeter Nellie Ruiz who could
not attend this month.
potluck selections with appropriate appetite are all very tasty and the eggplant
parmesan was special to the attending members. Jerry Starnes main dish of ham,
sausage and carrots in a sweet sauce is excellent with the fresh bread and butter.
Green salad and fresh fruit are healthy choices that add to the opportunity of
community. It is fine when we can gather together in fellowship and feast and
enjoy each others life experiences and good company.
Finally, after announcements
and community updates, about 1:50pm we cleaned up the room and were dividing
up the potluck leftovers and were wishing each other better health options as
we made our way out the door to catch up with warm covers and afternoon napping.
is always nice to see new members and guests drop in and are encouraged to return.
This is a real nice down home noon meeting to attend. We are also very pleased
to enjoy the regular attendance of TONKAWA along with community guests and family
members. Our next meeting is at noon May 12, 2013.
