September/October Items

Gluten-Free Picnic in the Park

You and your family are invited to a bar-b-q with the Wichita Celiac Chapter on Saturday, September 22, at 5:00 at the Sedgwick County Park, Horseshoe Pavilion. Hamburgers and hotdogs, along with gluten free buns, regular buns, condiments, and drinks will be provided. Please bring a gluten-free side dish or dessert—either homemade or purchased. We also ask that you provide recipes or the package ingredients list for your item. If the recipe is from a book or website, please include the source.

The Horseshoe Pavilion is an enclosed, air conditioned building, so we will meet rain or shine. Playground, walking paths, and a horseshoe-pitching area are all close to the pavilion, providing fun for the family.

For those interested in information on diagnosing celiac or gluten sensitivity, Ramona Ryker will have several handouts and present information on the subject. There will be a time for questions and sharing of tips for gluten-free eaters.

Directions to the Park: Sedgwick County Park is located just west of the Sedgwick County Zoo at 21st Street and Zoo Boulevard. Enter the park from the 21st street entrance and stay on the main road. You will see the playground and Horseshoe Pavilion on your left.

Celiacs Eating Out (CEO)

Plan to join the group for Saturday lunch, October 27, at Jason's Deli, 21st and Ridge, at 1:00. You can enjoy delicious sandwiches and salads, and the conversation is always helpful. Invite your spouse or a friend as well. In order to facilitate seating, please contact Gayle Cloud prior to that day at or 788-2531.

Still trying to figure out the format!  Sorry!  Please bear with me.  - Staci

March and April 2012

Potluck Dinner

Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 24, when the Celiac support group will enjoy an outstanding potluck lunch at 1:00. The meeting is at East Evangelical Free Church, 14725 East Harry, Wichita. Please bring one or two covered dishes and your table service. Drinks will be provided. Please provide a recipe for each item that you bring, so that members with other food allergies can read the ingredients before eating! Recipes may also be included in future newsletters, so your name on the recipe is appreciated.

Dale Huntington, a local food fan who has Celiac disease, will talk about his experiences eating out in Wichita. Following his move from California, he determined to learn how to survive as a Celiac in a wheat state. Dale’s blog, “Gluten Free in Wichita,” describes some of his experiences! You are sure to enjoy this program.

We will also hear about a new medicine for treating the symptoms and effects of celiac disease, now in an investigational drug study at Heartland Research Associates here in Wichita. Sandra Sparr, research director, will give us a brief overview of the study, qualifications to participate, and future possibilities for this medication, should it be
approved by the FDA.

Directions to East Evangelical Free Church: From K-96 and Kellogg, travel about 1/3 mile east on Kellogg to 143rd Street, then turn right (south) and travel one mile to Harry. Turn left (east) on Harry. The church is about 1/3 mile from 143rd, on the south side of Harry. Enter through the double doors on the east side of the building. See you there!
