Ok, so I don’t mean this is the first Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) event I am going to, I mean this is the first event I am hosting through GIG Colorado! I am still a member and supportive of the CDF (Celiac Disease Foundation), and CSA (Celiac Sprue Association), but I am now becoming more active in GIG of Colorado. I have been increasingly impressed by all the amazing efforts of the Branch Manager of GIG Colorado, DeAnna Olson from iamgf, and the elected Leadership Team. This is a team of amazing leaders that have been working very hard to support the local gluten-free community. GIG Colorado has already hosted amazing events from Ice Cream Socials and Gluten-Free Baking Classes to a fabulous Five Course Gluten-Free Dinner Event in LoDo Denver.
So, I am happy to announce that I recently became a volunteer for the social task force with GIG Colorado focusing on Boulder County. I will be hosting a variety of local gluten-free events that focus on how to be safe and have a great time when out and about while living with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
And now . . . my first event announcement!
Going Gluten-Free at Red Frog Coffee
10:00am Saturday, July 23rd 2011
Red Frog Coffee, 15 Ken Pratt Blvd. Suite 200, Longmont 80501
Stop by Longmont’s locally owned Red Frog Coffee for the best cup of joe in town (or tea if you prefer), and meet other gluten-free locals. Come to socialize, enjoy amazing fair trade coffee, gluten-free treats and learn how to stay safe when going to coffee shops. Do you know which brands of flavored syrups are gluten-free? Is flavored tea gluten-free? How do you know when a labeled gluten-free treat is really gluten-free? Come to find out the answers! Samples from a gluten-free bakery will be available for taste-testing as well.

Don’t worry it is totally free . . . GIG Colorado just wanted to see the interest for the event and know how any people to expect. As a bribe, I mean reward, if you print and bring your “ticket” from the free registration you will be entered to win gluten-free prizes!
Do you have to be a member of GIG CO to come to an event? No! But, you are probably going to want to join soon enough :) and then you can click here to find out more.
