About Us



Due to the inclement weather and projections for more ice/freezing rain this afternoon we (CCSG and Wegmans) felt it was important to put safety first and reschedule today’s meeting for NEXT Sunday, March 8th @ 3 pm.  Same place, same time, same program — just one week later and hopefully with SUNSHINE :-)   Krystal Register (nutritionist from Wegmans’ team) is looking forward to joining us next week as well!

We ask that you re-register for next week by going to: http://ccsgwegmansmarch8.eventbrite.com
By having everyone register it provides a count for planning and it provides contact information (which is how we could send out a cancellation email) so please take a moment and register – THANKS!

We’re sorry for any inconvenience but we are not in charge of weather.  If we were it would be a lovely weather day today!!

March 8, 2015 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. CCSG has switched to quarterly meetings and we are VERY EXCITED about what we have planned for the first quarter of 2015.  We are meeting at WEGMANS at Waugh Chapel and we’ll be talking about favorite GF foods (with the discussion started by Dr. Nancy, Bambi and Wegmans’ nutritionist Krystal Register).
To read all the details and to RSVP (it’s free – we just want a count for planning purposes) click this link:

We hope to see you there! Don’t delay — register today!!

CCSG 2015 Tentative Schedule

The Chesapeake Celiac Support Group is going to be doing a few new things in 2015 and the Steering Committee would love your feedback as the year progresses. We have found that there is such good information about celiac disease/gluten sensitivity available online and in print, as well as easier accessibility to gluten free products, we are planning to meet quarterly instead of monthly for the 2015 calendar year. Because of this change, we have decided that for 2015 we will not be charging any membership fees. Next year we will reassess our programs going forward into 2016 and beyond. Additionally, we have decided that we will make all of our pertinent information available on the website and Facebook page and will, therefore, no longer publish a separate Newsletter. Huge thanks go to Linda Etherton who has consistently and professionally produced our Newsletter over the past nearly four years!

MARCH 8th – (1st Quarter) – Meeting at Wegmans (Waugh Chapel – Gambrills)

2nd Quarter (Apr/May/Jun) – Dining Out Event

3rd Quarter (Jul/Aug/Sep) – Speaker or Video Presentation with Discussion

4th Quarter (Oct/Nov/Dec) – Holiday Potluck Dinner

In addition to these four meetings, there may also be extra events scheduled, so please watch this website as well as our Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/CCSGInc) for further information!

The Steering Committee has also established a list of members who would be willing to provide “mentoring” to the newly-diagnosed or anyone who might need some individual support. This mentoring can be by email, phone, or in person, depending on the need.  Click here for mentors.

We look forward to a great 2015 for CCSG!!!
