  2. Hi Carol,
    I am trying to learn more about the Crescent Grange and its early days. I understand it was formed in 1898. At one time in the 1869s or so was it used by the Masons as a meeting place? Also, is there any other information about activities and people who used the grange in one form or another?

  3. Hi Carol, I read your wonderful piece on the STP Family in Boulder magazine. I thought it was very interesting and full of facts that I didn’t previously know. I also was a young hippie in Boulder at that time and knew the STPs a bit. I wrote an article about them for Vice magazine a couple of years ago. I’d love to chat with you via email about this. I can also send you my article. Is this the best place to communicate? Here’s my email address: friendlier999@hotmail.com. Hope to hear from you. Steve Lafreniere, Jamestown, NY.
