Our next meeting is Saturday, April 4th at 10:00am at The Hills Church.

For this meeting we will have a MUFFIN MADNESS breakfast.  So everyone get out your favorite muffin recipes and bake some to bring to the meeting to share with everyone.

Please bring extra copies of your recipe to share as well.

We will take a little bit of time for our business meeting.  We  then like to take some time for those of you that have a story to tell about your experience into the gluten free life style.

So start thinking about sharing your story with everyone.

We want to have some time for everyone to visit and get to know one another.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting on Saturday April 4th.

If you are new to the diet or not comfortable with baking yet, don't feel obligated to bring anything.

Sometimes the room can be chilly so if you are cold natured you might want to bring a jacket. 

KID'S  EASTER  ACTIVITIES

We would love for you to join us for GIG of North Texas Kid's Easter Egg Hunt!! It will be Saturday April 4th at 10:00am at The Hills Church in North Richland Hills. This event is for gluten-free children ages 2-11 and their families. Come for a fun time of hunting Easter eggs, crafts, and, of course, gluten free food. Please bring fruit or dessert to share.
We will begin the event with the adults for the MUFFIN MADNESS! Enjoy some muffins and get to visit with each other. Then the crafts and egg hunt will start.

Everything will conclude by noon.

Please RSVP to Holly Kline with your children's names and ages by Monday March 30. It is important that we know the ages so that we can organize categories for the egg hunt. 
 

Gluten Free 101 Class

If you are newly diagnosed with any condition that needs to follow a gluten-free diet, we highly recommend coming to our monthly class 'Gluten Free 101 - An introduction to Living Gluten Free'. This class meets across the hall from our regular monthly meetings and will give you a good foundation. The class starts at 10:00 am and ends around noon. Snacks and water will be served. A resource table is available afterward where you can preview many items to help you on your journey. This class is free, but registration is required. Registration is open to patients, family members, and medical professionals. To register, send an email to 101@northtexasgig.com
