Sunday is the annual family picnic of the Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group. It's accessible by MetroNorth--just get off at the Philipse Manor stop and head south and to the water. (I think you can to do it via Palmer Avenue or, possibly, a station overpass.)
Annual Family Picnic - Special Edition!
Sunday, June 24th
12:00 noon to Sunset
Kingsland Point Park
299 Palmer Avenue
Sleepy Hollow, NY
Bring your own food plus a dish to share. The support group provides drinks, ice, paper goods, and charcoal-fired grills--plus a giant combo Bounce House with water slide, gluten-free Sno-Cones, and a cool Pitch Burst ball toss for the kids, whatever that is.

In case of inclement weather, call the Westchester group's hotline at 845-486-7088 or check its website. For more information, call Westchester leader Chris Spreitzer at 914-737-5291.

The Westchester group isn't the only one to hold picnics. Here's exciting footage from the Bi-State Celiac Support Group in St. Louis.

Are you going up for this? I was thinking about it...

I won't be there, as I've got a prior commitment. Perhaps there'll be a picnic in NYC this summer, though. If so, I'll expect you to be there...because what would a picnic be without aunts? (Congrats!)

Anyway, if you do go and take the train, make sure you know how to get there from the station. (It should be really easy, but I have nothing better to do than worry over this....)

I ended up staying in the city. Oh well, next time. Thanks though for looking out for me! We definitely should have a picnic in NYC.
