Philly Mtg At Abington Hospital

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any details on the meeting this month at Abington Hospital? I ran into the president of the support group at Bunn's in Southampton (they had a gluten-free tasting event last week) but I didn't catch the date or time. Also, is there a fee to join the group or can anyone attend the meetings? I did come across the website for this support group but it's seemed outdated and didn't provide much info. Thanks!!

Hi Judy

You need to contact Karen Dalrymple, Co President, 215-757-1233. At the present she does not have email.

Doors open at 5:45PM to enable you to see vendors and speak with other members. Meeting starts at 7:30PM. Karen can give you the details on membership.

I am no longer able to be active in the support group. My dear wife, who was President for 23 years went home to be with her Lord four years ago.

There is an old web site which should be taken down so I suspect you may have found that.

Best Ed

Thanks Judy! I called Karen Dalrymple but her answering machine says to call someone named Donna. Tried that but she wasn't available. Then I called Abington Hospital's education center that lists the support group on their website but they didn't know anything either - told me to call Karen which I already did. So, I may just go over to Abington Hospital on the 21st and see if I can find it (I'm only about 5 minutes from the hospital anyway).

Just wanted to post that I went to this support group meeting tonight. I had to pay $25 to join the group but it was well worth it. They had several food vendors there so we could try all their different items - lots of yummy cakes, breads, etc. There was also a really interesting author who did a presentation about celiac disease and vitamin deficiencies. The next meeting is the third Friday in October.

Thanks so much for this email

I'm so glad you had a good time and benefited from attending.

Do you remember who the author was or a few of his bits of info?

About how many were there.

Thanks again.
