San Diego Elders Club
8, 2012 - Noon TONKAWA secretary Roy Cook arrived early and was
soon joined by Jerry Starnes, Rita and Nellie Ruiz.
meeting had a thin turn out (after the Holidays the only thin
in sight) of our faithful TONKAWA membership and members of the
American Indian Warriors association. We were pleased to see faithful
members at the monthly gathering. Our blessing was provided by Barbara
Shramek. 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.
Cooper found an alumnus of her Colorado Springs College
days, Barbara Shramek. Additionally, she allowed big mouth
Roy Cook to announce her selection as the Honored Elder at the San
Diego State annual Pow wow on March 17, 2012. Also, American Indian
Association will be the Honored Color Guard and the AIWA President
William Buchannan will be the Head Gourd Dancer.
We ate up the fine selection of 15 bean soup macaroni salads, spicy
and sweet delights and naturally good TONKAWA coffee. We chatted
up HOLIDAY activities in addition to a lively and exchange of jokes
and humorous episodes of our elders long lives and cleaned
up the room. We were still wishing each other good health options
as we scooted out the door to follow on with the late afternoon
activities- naps or mega-tons of play-off FOOTBALL.
we will see you and a friend February 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
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.
