San Diego Elders Club
2010 TONKAWA minutes:
some reason, maybe Football playoff games on TV, but the vehicle
parking was free and easy this Sunday for all the members. What
a bright warm Sunday. We had a minimal number of members and guests
in attendance this Sunday. Early arrivals this Sunday are TONKAWA
Vice President Jerry Starnes and Roy Cook. Nellie rode with Jean
and her Mother, Genevieve. Jerry had been shopping for paper goods
and was loaded down with hot food and supplies.
It would have
nicer to share company with more members this sunny Sunday. It always
feels so good to be alive and in the company of our respected American
Indian TONKAWA Elders. The attending members and the tables looked
fine and we sat down to an undefined potluck feast with good TONKAWA
hot coffee. Jerry Starnes brought Sassafras tea to the members to
provided the luncheon blessing at 12:10. There is warm fellowship,
years and years of living and wisdom close at hand. Traditional
first month dishes were enjoyed by all the members. Black-eyed peas
with ham hocks went very good with the fresh corn bread. Fettuccini
Alfredo smothered with mushrooms and pieces of chicken breast were
outstanding, baked chicken legs, fresh tossed salad with Vidalia
onion dressing. Wheat bread and butter and for all to enjoy sliced
dill pickles for that special tang. Sassafras tea and good hot TONKAWA
coffee lubricated the conversation.
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 February 14, 2010.
