Information & Registration

Welcome and Hooray!  It's been 30+ years since our last reunion, so we are long overdue to have a fantastic PARTY!  We, the reunion committee, Gerry Jove (lead organizer), Pat Zubulsky (email co-ordinator), Maureen O'Such (treasurer), and Taffy Powderly (our girl on the ground in Southbury!) know everyone is looking forward to seeing all their cousins at the Fox Family reunion picnic this summer.  We have a lot of catching up to do with cousins that regularly saw each other back in the old days of the '70s and '80S and we are very excited to meet new cousins in our greatly expanded Fox family!

This website will communicate important information about all the reunion weekend activities as well as reunion costs, hotel accomodations and contact details if you have additional questions. 

We also need to have an accurate count of who is attending the various reunion events to be sure we have enough food and space reserved for all the fun activities described below.  
Please use the registration forms at the bottom of this page OR you may RSVP your family email co-ordinator directly.  Payments can be sent to Maureen O'Such. 
Additional instructions on how to register and send payments to cover the reunion costs are included below.

 
IMPORTANT UPDATE:  IF YOU REGISTERED BEFORE JUNE 6, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE "REGISTRATION" SECTION BELOW FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO RE-REGISTER FOR THE PICNIC TO INCLUDE YOUR LUNCH PREFERENCES.
