San Diego Elders Club
November 13, 2011-Noon
Roy Cook arrived early. Celia and Manuel Flores were also on time
and were soon joined by Jerry Starnes and Rita. We appreciate Jonathan
York, IHRC, coming down early to open the door for the TONKAWA gathering.
This is a superb
turn out of our faithful TONKAWA membership and members of the American
Indian Warriors association. We were pleased to see old friends
in the Indian community but new to our regular meetings: Verna,
Elizabeth, Carmella, Pricilla and Joe Rentiria. Many visitors are
seen at our annual dinners but not as frequently at the monthly
gatherings. Regardless of other priorities it is all good when we
can gather to feast and enjoy each others company.
was a good girl to bring her Mother, Genevieve and her brother John.
We know it is not easy for Genevieve to get around and we are blessed
to be in her company. John was called upon for the blessing.
had a Thanksgiving quiz and prizes for the right answers and for
everyone there too. The combined membership decided to hold a dinner
next month for their membership at the University Avenue Home Town
Buffet on Wednesday of the 21th at 2pm.
There was an
abundance of enthusiasm and laughter and excellent home cooked pot
luck Turkey day food and pies. We ate up, cleaned up and chatted
up our next month activities in addition to the recently passed
Harvest dinners activities. We were still discussing or cussing
options as we scooted out the door to follow on with the late afternoon
activities- naps or Native American flute music at the Mission trails
park 1 to 4pm.
Maybe we will
see you and a friend (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 family member.
Thank the Creator
and all of you for being there today. Mehan.
