  1. Hey, it is great that you have helped get the word out about this workshop. I hope that you will remind your readers that it will begin tomorrow night, Thursday the 19th. I have heard many opinions about the future of the Old School. Some say to tear it down for playing fields or to build a new office building, others to re-use it as a school again, or to open it as a Community Center with space for classes, a theater/performance space, a senior center, artist’s studios, a youth rec center. I am really excited about the possibilities for this site, and I hope that there will be many more new ideas expressed over the course of this workshop.

    Sounds like a great opportunity for Crozet – let’s show them that we care.
