November 2009 President’s Report

I hope that you have all had a chance to take in all the lovely fall colours that have popped up in the last week. Mother Nature sure has been busy. On our trip to both Kamloops and Kelowna over the weekend I could not believe the beautiful array of colour that I was seeing.

HAPPY RETIRMENT MAUREEN!  We want to wish Maureen Green all the best as I understand you will be retiring from your job as dietitian in Penticton. Maureen has been such a help to our Penticton Satellite group. We are all going to miss you. We hope that you will stay in touch.

You will see later in the newsletter that we will be having a cooking demo before our lunch. Elana Westers will be making us some cookies to sample. Please look for the details in the newsletter. This will be a real treat and I mean treat as we will get to sample the goodies.

I will also be bringing a new cookbook to the meeting for you to look at and purchase. It’s by Jeanne Basye The Gluten Free Cookie Lady. I made some cookies today and they are great. I also love her flour mix the cookies were nice and soft and held together very well.

We will be planning our Christmas dinner at this meeting and anyone interested in coming is encouraged to sign up at this meeting as we are placing a limit of 60 for dinner.

I will look forward to seeing everyone on Nov. 8th for another great Pot Luck.

Irene Thompson,
Kelowna Celiac Chapter President
