A family-friendly program awaits those who attend the next meeting of the Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group (WCSSG) from 2:00-4:00 pm on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow.

The guest speaker is Tracey Keegan, co-founder of the Celiac Support Group at Children's Hospital in Boston. According to the WCSSG newsletter, she'll talk about cooking and children, shopping and eating out, emotional strategies for families, and "what kids have to say." (I hear they say the darndest things!)

What's that you say? You've actually got kids?? Well, good news for you: There will be a separate, supervised children's meeting with a puppet show about coping at school. It includes a section about explaining gluten and celiac disease to friends.

For all attendees, there will also be samples of Gaga's Sherbetter, sales of the books Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic and The Gluten Free Kid, and vendors Mr. Ritt's, Gilbert's Gourmet Goodies, and Julianna's Delectable Fruits. I apologize for posting this a tad late for a guaranteed Mr. Ritt's pre-order, but you can still try for a late order by calling 1-877-677-4887.
