It was a beautiful day for our November potluck. Thirty attended the yummy potluck at the Winfield Seniors Activity Centre in Lake Country.
After lunch, a reluctant Eleanor, Chapter VP, graciously took the con and lead us through the chapter meeting , introducing our first time guests and bringing us up to speed on Chapter activities. Chapter President Irene was away at a Canadian Celiac Association national board meeting.
Some topics we discussed:
- How long it takes to get an appointment with a gastroenterologist for a biopsy;
- Celiac aware GPs;
- Getting new member info kits out to local dietitians to replace the old ones; and,
- Our annual Christmas dinner in a few weeks time.
