Tonto Village honored our veterans Saturday by holding a Memorial Weekend breakfast. Jim Dooley (85) was one of our honored guests. Jim is a WWII Army veteran from 1943 to 1946 (joining the service when he was 17 years old), who parachuted into France and walked with General Patton in Germany. The following day, Jim hosted a family reunion of 90 relatives in Ellison Creek Summer Homes. Jim is the proud father of 10 children.

Tonto Village was almost filled to the brim with part-time residents, their families and many newcomers to our village, thanks in part to the Memorial Weekend breakfast sponsored by the Hellsgate Fire Department Auxiliary, the Fireflies.
