Sherwood Park Celiac Support group that has started up. Cathy, the organizer wrote in with an update of how the first session went:
Gluten Free Edmonton - A Celiac guide and resource for gluten free information in Edmonton, Alberta
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.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!
