Thirty relative strangers shared a wonderful weekend together this June. Cousins mostly as we’re all related by virtue of sharing a connection to one of the eleven children of Richard and Sarah Ann Jones Broadhurst. Thanks go to the families of Harold Broadhurst and his sister Shirley Smaka for hosting a cocktail party and then arranging a dinner for us at Foxy’s near Alexandria Bay. The next day Gary and Kathy Snow hosted us at their riverfront home in Alexandria Bay, a place many knew as The Adams Greentop Cabins from childhood. Gary’s grandparents owned the property originally and it held wonderful memories for many of the cousins.

Generally from left to right moving up and down as needed, we have: Susan Broadhurst, Scott Broadhurst, Ruth Broadhurst, Greg Broadhurst (red shirt), Chris Whitman behind Greg, Harold Broadhurst behind Chris, Kay Schwartz in front of Greg, Candy Baker Broadhurst behind Kay, Dick Broadhurst (me) behind my wife Candy, Jenna Marie Frisolone, her grandparents Al and Sandy (sunglasses) behind her, Shirley Smaka (in front with notebook), Richard Smaka, Mary Snow, Carol Murdock, Gary Snow (with cap), Beverly Frisolone behind Gary, Karen Fehr, Bill Hoke, Jess Fehr, Sue Hoke, Bob Murdock behind Sue and Kathy Snow.
