Note: Changes are in the works. We are trying out a new location this year. Our October meeting will be at Meadowridge Library, Meadowood Shopping Center, 5726 Raymond Rd, Madison, WI 53711 (Mapquest map). Enter the library and walk through it to the meeting room. Please note that the October meeting is on the third Saturday rather than the second Saturday.
Members typically meet on the second Saturday of each month, from 10 am to Noon (except in January and August). But please note that October's meeting will be on the third Saturday. We enjoy a variety of activities, including updates on research news and celiac disease in the media, speakers, opportunities to try new gluten-free products, recipe sharing, and potluck celebrations.
