San Diego Elders Club
TONKAWA MIGHTY MINUTES February 12, 2012 - Noon
VP Jerry Starnes arrived early and was soon joined by Roy Cook and
hot tamales Celia and Manuel Flores. Both IHRC administrator
Billie and contract worker Rachel Morrison popped in early for a
plate and to say hello.
This meeting had an excellent turn out of our faithful TONKAWA membership
and friends. We were pleased to see faithful members at the monthly
gathering. Our blessing was provided by Manuel Flores. It is all
good when we can gather to feast and enjoy each others company.
Regardless of other priorities of those that didnt remember
or couldnt make it.
ate up the fine selection of Beef tamales, tamale pie, Meat loaf,
pepperoni pizza, steamed cauliflower with cheese sauce, cheesy casserole,
boiled baby potatoes, fruit salad, spicy and sweet delights and
naturally sugar free donuts with good TONKAWA coffee.
We chatted up political and sea cruise activities in addition to
upcoming pow pows and conferences intersperse with a lively and
exchange of jokes and humorous episodes of our elders long
lives. Dr. Gewendalle Cooper will be the Honored Elder at the San
Diego State annual Pow wow on March 17, 2012. Also, American Indian
Warriors Association will be the Honored Color Guard and the AIWA
President William Buchannan will be the Head Gourd Dancer.
Dennis Charette had a handmade craft valentine gift for the lucky
selections of an IHRC assisted raffle. As we were admiring the prizes
we cleaned up the room and were still wishing each other good health
options as we scooted out the door to follow on with the late afternoon
Maybe we will see you and a friend March 12, 2012 (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.
next TONKAWA meeting is at noon February 12, 2012 at the IHRC offices,
4265 Fairmont Ave. San Diego 92105. There is plenty of good parking
with easy access. Thank the Creator and all of you for being there
or not today. Mehan, aho.
