November 11, 2007 TONKAWA Minutes.

We had the best-attended and joyful meeting in some time!

Jerry Starnes set up the room for the regular noon TONKAWA meeting. Many regular and special members attended the TONKAWA meeting. Don Vigenault opened the meeting with a blessing and prayer for our Warriors and those who were not able to attend because of illness or disaster. Nellie Ruiz was able to make her bus connections and was also an early member for the TONKAWA meetings

Manuel and Cecilia Flores brought an always-welcome Holiday treat- hot white corn with green chili Tamales. Nellie Ruiz complimented the Southwest theme with an enchilada casserole and Spanish rice. There was also: Beans, carrots, potatoes and cheese along with a wide selection of fresh fruit. Chef Jerry Starnes brought in a special herbal chicken dish. Finally, chips, dips, cookies, bananas for all the monkeys in the room. Fresh homemade bread with butter complimented the main dishes. Soda pop, ice tea, good Navy Hot Coffee with pie, ice cream and a great selection of cookies added to this rich meal!







Excellent laughter and jokes throughout the meal continued as we completed our meal with announcements of the Holiday Dinner, Family night, and Southern Indian Health Wellness conference at Barona.
Tell all the TONKAWA members and friend of these opportunities.

Finally, Maybe we will see you and a friend (We are always recruiting Elders to be TONKWA members!). We are very pleased to enjoy the regular attendance of TONKAWA also community guests and family members. (Aho to Violet Tunohun for these great shots.)


Our next TONKAWA meeting is at noon December 9, 2007, at the Many Nations: Chet Hunt Community Room, 3928 Illinois St. San Diego, CA. 92104.
