May 2009 Membership Report

by Angela Petrie

Hello everyone!

There are several members whose memberships expired in the last 3 months of 2008 that have not renewed. This is the last time I will bring this up (I promise). there has been some confusion with National (due to the new membership database) involving renewals and I want to make sure that no one has “fallen through the cracks”. This will be the last newsletter you receive if you have not renewed. If you do not receive our next newsletter, and think you should be, please be sure to contact me at

We have added to our cookbook selections that are available for purchase at our potluck luncheons. They are:

  • The Best GF Family Cookbook, and;
  • The 125 Best GF Recipes by Heather Butt and Donna Washburn.

You can purchase them from us for $19.95. I have seen both of them listed at $27.00 + taxes in some retail stores. I hope to have them in stock for the May meeting.

I sat in on Heather and Donna’s talk at the Victoria Conference last year.

These ladies take “regular food” and duplicate the taste in their GF kitchen. They are quite an impressive duo and our whole family enjoys whatever I cook out of the book I have.

We have had four new members join our Chapter since our last newsletter. A big welcome to:

  • Brandy (Bobby) Botham and Patricia Clement of Penticton
  • Sally Lang and Teghan McCormick of Kelowna.

We are excited to see some new young members joining the group. I hope you can all come and play while the adults have their “meeting”.

We hope to see you ALL at the May luncheon!
