WHEN:  Friday, December 12, 2014 6:30pm

WHERE:  Anne Arundel Medical Center, 7th Floor Belcher Pavilion (formerly the Health Sciences Pavilion)

You don’t want to miss this event!  It’s one of the BEST CCSG meetings each year.  LOTS of great gluten free food and fun with good friends.  What could be better than that?

We will also have an exciting gift exchange (Yankee Swap).  If you’d like to participate please bring a wrapped gift ($10 or less) for each person who wants to join the fun.  It can be anything (plant, book, GF food, gaggift, anything you would like).  This is a great way to get to know other members of our wonderful group!

Go to EventBrite to RSVP for this FREE event and to get your ticket(s) (1 ticket is needed for each person in your group) and specify what type of food you will bring for the potluck (1 dish per family/group).  The link is:



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 at the holiday party and 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!

1st Quarter (Jan/Feb/Mar) – Grocery Store Tour

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.  Contact info for the mentors will be published on the website in the coming weeks.

We look forward to a great holiday party, a fun gift exchange and a great 2015 for CCSG!!!

Welcome to Celiacs Online

Celiacs Online is the domain of Chesapeake Celiac Support Group, Inc. A 501(c)3 Non-Profit.

This site was designed to share information with newly diagnosed and experienced celiacs who live in Maryland, but we believe people across the country will find it useful as an on-line directory. Our goal is to provide a resource tool so that celiacs can find support groups, current medical information, local food sources and fabulous food sites from Celiacs Online.
