It was 20 years ago this month, that MaryLou Richardson and Dorothea Northey held the very first BGIG meeting in Bellingham at MaryLou's house on Henry St. As they say "we have come a long way, baby!" Who could have imagined that we would have EVERYTHING now to eat that we said goodbye to when we were first diagnosed. Beer, pizza, chocolate cake, bread (we don't have to make it and it tastes really good!)
We are planning on serving a soup/chili dinner with bread from 5 B's bakery and dessert. If you would like to join us for the gathering, YOU MUST RSVP, so we know how many to plan for. Thanks for your support over the years - we will continue to have the monthly informal coffees, send out the monthly email newsletter and maintain the website. See you there!!
