Don Vigneault and Jerry Starns arrived early to help setup the room for the meeting. They had the place open and set up the tables and chairs for the meeting before I got there. Jerry brought in some excellent enchiladas. Jean Vigneault had a crock-pot with good chili. Nellie Ruiz delighted many with her Nopales. Now, that is natural food!

I put the coffee on to brew and found a place for my Mother, Mary Cook next to Helen Halling. They started to exchange views on crochet projects. Esther Abrahano, President chaired the meeting and Don Vigneault led the blessing. Visitors, El Bisarra and Anita Sharp from the American Indian Health Clinic spoke to the membership of recent developments.
Announcements of the Grunion Festival, later the same Sunday in Pacific Beach and future activities were shared with the members. Rose Davis sent the published copies of the summer issue of INDIAN VOICES for the TONKAWA members to enjoy.
The TONKAWA proceedings and past newsletters are available 24 hours and seven days a week on the World Wide Web, TONKAWA associate member Jean Vigneault is continuing to mail the TONKAWA club newsletter to the membership. Don Vigneault called up the members for the gift exchange.
Finally, we bagged, bundled and cleaned up the Chester Hunt community meeting room at the Many Nations Recovery Center to finish up another fun, fabulous, TONKAWA club time with the most beautiful people in the world, Indian people. Mehan, thank you
