Stop the Pipeline thanks the businesses and individuals who helped make the first-ever STP Summer Gathering such a huge success! The event was well-attended and resistence was reinforced. This will support our ongoing efforts to defeat the attempts of “Constitution” and Kinder Morgan to lay massive, high pressure gas pipelines through our farmlands, forests, and back yards.
Again, many thanks from Stop the Pipeline and the many landowners whose interests we represent.
