is windy and unpredictable weather. We just had a good room of faithful
TONKAWA members in attendance this Sunday. Early arrivals this Sunday
are TONKAWA Vice President Jerry Starnes and Rita. Jerry and Roy
set up the room and Rita covered the tables with tablecloths.
Jerry Starnes, enrolled Menominee Tribe, chaired the meeting and
Ruth Cervantes offered the blessing for the luncheon. We had a good
TONKAWA response to a round robin introduction and review of the
last month events in each members life. We might make this
a part of future TONKAWA meetings.
1. Jean Vineault,
TONKAWA treasurer, reported with a written copy for all the members
and comments on the line items. It is M/S/P as presented. The discussion
moved into related areas of concern and future planning for the
TONKAWA seniors club:
Dues will remain the same $5, year and will be collected this August
in conjunction with a mailed invitation to the next, Aug or Oct.,

TONKAWA members and the tables looked festive and fine. We sat down
to a heartfelt healthy potluck feast of ham and lima beans, Teriyaki
chicken thighs, spicy chili beans, corn bread, rice and kidney beans
in a red sauce, pan dulce, fresh bread and butter and type 2 special
selection of donuts, bear claws maple and chocolate long johns..
Finally, there is good TONKAWA hot coffee.
up, packed up and while some TONKAWA members were still packing
take-home snacks, drinking coffee, talking and laughing,
others went out the door by 1:45 pm.
It is always
nice to see new members and guests drop in and are encouraged to
return. This is a very nice down home meeting to attend. We are
also very pleased to enjoy the regular attendance of TONKAWA along
with community guests and family members.
The next TONKAWA
meeting is May 11, 2010.
