Gluten Free in Central Arkansas, branch of GIG
Monthly meetings will now be held in the Fireplace Room at the Arkansas Heart Hospital.
I hope you can join us to celebrate our new “home”. There will be foods to try. Members are welcome to bring in home made or purchased GF goodies to share with the group too.
This room is located in a building behind the main hospital. When you drive in from the stop light, you will be facing the hospital. Go to the right. When you come to the stop sign, go left. This takes you behind the hospital. The building with the Fireplace Room will be on the right with a sign that says ANNEX. There is convenient parking in front of the building and we can ignore the HR ONLY parking signs as it is after hours.
