Thanks to Selena De Vries and Irene Wiseman for the photos.

Jim’s Place in Vernon provided the pizza and Schar sent a great assortment of products for us to try.

Aside from the food, Selena De Vries, our Chapter dietitian answered many questions that our members had.

Our next meetings are September 10th and November 12th.

Twenty Kelowna Celiac Chapter members enjoyed a lovely potluck on Sunday, December 4th at the Lake Country Seniors’ Centre.  Members brought ham, turkey, and all the trimmings.  There were also wonderful desserts for all to enjoy.

Says Chapter President Irene Wiseman, “This was, in my opinion, one of the best potlucks…  It was so nice to see everyone and enjoy their company we didn’t have a meeting so had time to visit.”

Thanks to Irene for providing the photos and to everyone who attended.  If you have photos to share, please email them to [email protected]

We’ll post the dates of our 2017 chapter potlucks and wellness group meetings soon!

Gluten-Free Christmas Potluck December 4th

potuck food set-upOur next chapter meeting is Sunday, December 4th at the Lake Country (Winfield) Seniors Activity Centre, 9832 Bottom Wood Lake Road. Doors open at noon.

Please bring your gluten-free Christmas themed potluck dishes, with recipes and/or sources. All food brought for the luncheon must be gluten-free.

At the door, we ask adults to donate a toonie to defray the hall rental costs.

We changed the format to a potluck last year and it went well. In previous years the executive would cook the dinner and there was a higher admission cost. The potluck format makes it less expensive for everyone and distributes the work.

Please note that this is a CHANGE from previous years.  To keep the cost down for everyone, rather than charge for a fundraising dinner made by a small group of volunteers, we changed the format to a potluck where everyone brings a dish (with a Christmas theme if possible) and there is the usual $2 donation.  This makes it less expensive for everyone and distributes the work.

By Marie Ablett

food-potluckWe had a good potluck meeting yesterday; 17 people attended.
The food was good and everyone enjoyed themselves, but unfortunately, no one thought to take a picture to share.

We had a good discussion about what national is doing and pondered how things were going.

We all agreed that we like the social interaction at these potlucks as well as the food!

The next and final potluck for 2015 is Sunday September 13, 2015.
