Kelowna Celiac Is Shutting Down

sad

sadKelowna Celiac held elections at our AGM November 4th.

Our current executive did not seek re-election as each has served for many years (some 10+ years).  Unfortunately, no one stepped forward to fill any of the vacancies.

Therefore the chapter is closing forever effective March 1, 2019.

This website will continue to run until March 15th to meet our obligations to our current sponsors.

Thanks to all those who supported Kelowna Celiac in the past.

Election Meeting Tomorrow – Save Kelowna Chapter

Join us tomorrow for what could be our last Kelowna Chapter meeting ever.

The meeting will be held at the Seniors’ Activity Centre, located next door to the Winfield Arena, 9832 Bottom Wood Lake Road, Lake Country, Winfield. We precede our meetings with a 12:00 potluck lunch at a cost of $2. per adult (17 years and older) to cover the cost of hall rental and coffee. Those attending are asked to bring their favourite gluten-free dish (and the recipe for all to see). Our potluck lunches are a wonderful opportunity to discover new recipes and realize that gluten-free eating does not mean sacrifice or boredom.

Elections will be the focus of the meeting. All of our executive is stepping down as each has served for many years (some 10+ years). We are asking members to fill the following positions: PRESIDENT, TREASURER, VICE PRESIDENT, SECRETARY. These positions need to be filled as of December 30th. You would only need to commit to holding two meetings per year. If you wish for the website to remain running after April 1st, a new webmaster must also step forward.

Please consider taking on these positions. The current executive will help you get started. Any questions please feel free to contact Irene Thompson 250-832-7738 or email [email protected] for more information. You can also contact any of the other members of the executive on our contact us page.

If you want the chapter to continue in 2019, we need volunteers to step forward NOW. The time commitments are minimal and it’s a great way to give back to the Celiac community.
