I like to drive through Stone Ridge Patrice.  I always am saying I should stop and have a look.  Maybe I will next time.  BTW you have some html code in the middle of the post here you may want to remove.

I, too, grew up in Stone Ridge. I lived there from 1975 until 1989 when I graduated Rondout Valley High School. My mom worked at that library for years. It brings back good memories.
