This is the Premiere Launch of the Cousins Picnic web site. Hopefully it will help to keep all of us more up to date with what's going on in our family (and, of course extensions thereof).

It goes without saying that we all have a great time at the Annual Picnic. But, many of us do not see each other again until the next picnic (that's a whole year), so it's hard to keep up with what everybody's doing (the grapevine just isn't that good)! There are also parts of our family that can't make it to Fair Lawn, NJ because they live too far away.

This web site can change all that -- but we'll need your help. Anytime you have any news about you and/or your family, you can just post it to the site so all the Cousins can enjoy your good news. Even if the news is not good, it's still a way of letting the family know someone is in need. This can be a great way for us to communicate with each other and have some fun!
