Maybe we will
see you and a friend (We are always recruiting Elders to be TONKWA
members!). It 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.
