I went to the Cherokee Community meeting last night with Howard and Judy and their son, Patrick. We wanted to introduce those Native Americans to the PINCH organization since we work as an advocate for minorities. Native Americans are definitely a minority. They served a dinner (I don't eat dinner that late so just had some ice teas that Patrick brought me) and afterward they had a lot of business to transact. What do you know! I won the first door prize! Next Judy won a door prize and then Patrick, their son won one. We were all so surprised! Mine was the best. It had a lot of great prizes like three certificates for two for dinner at the Cherokee Casino. I also won three certificates for two for nights stay at the Cherokee Hotel. I don't know what I will do with those. I may give them to Bredesen's.
Here is a photo Howard took of us with our door prize bags.
We met a lot of Cherokee Nation officials there and gave out a lot of PINCH brochures. They invited Howard to speak and explain about the PINCH organization.
Later, Our photos were taken with some of the officials,
Here we are with some of them.
We had a good time and the meeting moved right along briskly.
We also met Tribal Councilor Victoria Vazquez and this is her photo.
My granddaughter, Ashley had call that afternoon and talked to me for an hour and a half before I left for the meeting. She brought me up to speed about my grandson (her brother) Jerod and his present situation.
When I got home I was very tired and took a quick bath and went right to bed.
Now Bob and I will go to exercise class this morning and then Bunco in the afternoon at the senior center.
I will fix a chicken and noodle casserole for lunch. I will have some broccoli with that and fruit for dessert. Bob will bring a salad.
Lunch was fine. I hurried around to clean up afterward and then went to Bunco at the senior center. I had a good time although I didn't win anything.
When I got home the paper was here and I will read it. Bob will be over in a couple of hours to read it and also watch the news.
After Bob left, I took my bath and Missy and I watched "Nature" on TV. It was all about the big cats so she was fascinated! I fell asleep in the chair during Nova and didn't see it so we just went to bed. It was about 9:00.
