Things went well at the first meeting of the Sherwood Park Celiac Support Group. No, went well is an understatement...they ROCKED!!!!! It was a fabulous group of people with a nice mix as far as age goes. A couple of men, a couple ladies with young daughters that have Celiac disease, a few twenty-something gals, and a few of us "more mature" women. The majority of the group were diagnosed within the past twelve months. So, for us "seasoned" Celiacs it was a chance to share our knowledge. Mind you, I did learn a thing or two myself. And I've had Celiac disease for ten years. The questions, comments and ideas were flying all evening! This group is GREAT! The evening was all that I had hoped it would be and more! The feedback that I got was wonderful! Here are a couple of the comments:
"We really enjoyed last evening and I think it was a huge success."
"It was really a wonderful experience and I am looking forward to the next meeting! This group offers great resources and support for myself and my daughter :)"
We will be meeting the third Thursday of every month at the Bethel Lutheran Church - Room #1, 298 Bethel Drive, Sherwood Park AB. Anyone wishing information or to attend the meeting, please contact Cathy at email@example.com.We wish Cathy all the best with this support group and look forward to continued updates on how this helps those living gluten free in Sherwood Park and Edmonton!
