INDEX: September 2012

This issue we present several feature stories that cover a wide range of topics in the stone industry. Our subjects range from the large scale monument preservation work on a Stone Mountain, Georgia landmark, to touring the Danby Quarry in Vermont, to the volunteer repair work in a vandalized cemetery, organized by a New York boy scout and performed by a group of dedicated community volunteers, to the stunning and beautiful work created by a mid-west shop. We invite our readers to comment on our feature stories and in-depth interviews, industry news, and advice and commentary presented in the September Slippery Rock Gazette. See our Publisher’s Pen.

We welcome our readers' comments, including rebuttals, providing we may publish your commentary.
