Flag Day Sunday is bright and beautiful. Early arrivals this Sunday
are TONKAWA Vice President Jerry Starnes and Roy. They set up the
room and covered the table with a tablecloth.
Jerry Starnes, enrolled Menominee Tribe, chaired the meeting and
offered the blessing for the luncheon. We had a small TONKAWA response.
Perhaps many went to the San Diego county fair?
was lively over issues: recruitment, attendance, other attractive
community activities, transportation and basic tribal aspects of
hospitality and generosity.
2. TONKAWA Dues will remain the same $5, year and will be collected
this August in conjunction with a mailed invitation to the next,
Aug or Oct., hosted TONKAWA dinner or luncheon.
3. We will
send out a mailed print copy of the TONKAWA minutes to the few members
that do not have Email access.
TONKAWA members around the table looked festive and fine. We sat
down to a heartfelt healthy potluck feast of smoked ham hocks and
15 bean soup, corn bread muffins, fresh steamed corn on the cob,
potato salad spaghetti and meatball sauce, homemade cake and type
2 special selection of donuts, bear claws maple and chocolate long
johns. Finally, to wash it all down, there is good TONKAWA hot coffee.
MTS ride came by and she had to hail it down and rush out the door.
We cleaned 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 1:15 pm.
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 July 11, 2010.
