One of our members, Mary Lawrence from, passed on these events that may be of interest:

NBC30 Health & Wellness Expo – Connecticut Convention Center, 100 Columbus Blvd., Hartford, CT
Sunday, October 26 11:00 a.m.
Don't miss the 2008 NBC 30 Health & Wellness Festival, Oct. 25 and 26 at the CT Convention Center. I will be giving a gluten-free vegan cooking demonstration on Seasonal Soups and Stews at 11:00 on Sunday, October 26. The event will feature free health screenings, demonstrations and activities for the whole family. Last year more than 22,000 attended the event, and this year promises to be even bigger and better!

Quick, Raw and Delicious Vegan Treats – Shoreline Center for Wholistic Health, 35 Boston Street, Guilford, CT
Sunday, November 1, 4:00 p.m.
Had enough of Halloween candy? This mini workshop will give you a flavor of how to make quick and healthy raw vegan treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Visit the Shoreline Center for more information.

Other sites/events of interest: is a gluten-free onsite bakery located in Vernon off I-84.
Might be worth the trip for fresh bread and pastries- do a car pool!!! located in Hamden on Whalley Ave., this store is dedicated to gluten-free, natural/organic foods, and has a huge selection. They have a couple of coming events that look worthwhile: a tasting jamboree Sat. Oct 25 (anyone to carpool??) and a special lecture on Celiac diseases on Thurs. Nov. 6, by Dr. Amanda Leavitt, a Naturapathic physician.

There will be another exciting raffle at the November 13th event -- RSVP to Sybil if you are able to join us!
