If you have not attended our GF 101 Class, it is a real learning experience for the newly diagnosed or someone that has questions that they need answers to.

We will have our annual GF Holiday Cookie Exchange. Please bring at least 4 dozen homemade GF cookies made from scratch or from a mix (no bought cookies please). We will have zip lock bags for everyone to take home 3-4 dozen cookies in the exchange. If you are new to the GF diet and haven't mastered GF cooking yet, don't worry about bringing cookies. We should have enough for everyone. Bring the recipes to your cookies so we can share them with everyone.

Kids of all ages are invited to participate and enjoy in the feast of cookies. We will have special games and crafts for the kids party which will take place at this meeting also. Please bring the whole family for a fun meeting. Please e-mail Holly at to let her know the names and ages of your kids that are coming.

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 (in a separate room) and ends around noon. Snacks and water will be served. This class is free, but registration is required. Registration is open to patients, family members, and medical professionals. To register, send an email to

The room can be a little cool sometimes so you may want to bring a jacket if you are cold natured.

Hope to see you December 3 for all of these GREAT holiday events!!
