This day, after
adjustments, produced a glorious sense of community. Additional
members were able to enjoy this wonderful summer day with smiles
and thoughts of recent activities and past members participations.
Mr. Popularity (Ben) was anticipated and welcome with a big box
of favorite sugar redline donuts.
This day our
blessing was by Dennis Charette. His prayer called upon Tunkashila
Creator and called for help with those under addiction to benefit
the members who could not make it today and their families. Also
to those who could benefit from prayer especially those under stress
was: Jerry, Rita and his assistant Rachel, Jean, Roy, Ben, Nellie,
El and our President Vickie Gambala. She had updates on social events,
weddings and progress of the Soaring Eagle dance workshops. Additionally
she highlighted the topics of Spousal abuse and racial profiling
that were held at a Womans conference on Rincon. Further
an Inter-tribal Pow wow will be held in conjunction with the 100
year Balboa Park Panama exposition. And she reported that IHRC has
lost their grant. SCAIR will step in and address the need for job
development, coordination and training.
