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
