THE C2D1 Haunting

In the winter of 1985 a dozen SUNY Geneseo college students, living in the dorm Erie Hall were terrorized by an extreme haunting. Lasting for several months, students eventually knew to stay away from room C2D1 where a full-bodied apparition was sighted and photographed, strange disembodied voices were heard (that were eventually recorded) and moving objects witnessed. What makes this extreme haunting particularly compelling and unique is not just the duration (it lasted for several months) but its extreme intensity: the large number of credible witnesses (including a priest, a college professor, and several parents), the vicious physical attacks and the amount of surviving historical evidence. Key Witness, Christopher Di Cesare, has extensive details about the haunting at

The haunting is a story that "wants" to be told. CITA Productions is honored to have had the opportunity to assist with a number of projects that help share this incredible story.

The Power and Passion of Freemasonry
by George Peter

Power and Passion of Freemasonry

What is the Ground plan of Masonry?

Who are entitled to knowledge?
o    All men that have a desire to gain it, and abilities to improve.

Lectures in the First Degree
William Preston, 1787

On August 10, 2008, George Peter laid to rest his working tools. Before his untimely passing to the Celestial Lodge, he asked William Edwards (CITA Productions) to help finalize the book project for publication -- an honor indeed! For the thoughtful Mason, there will be much to study and reflect upon within the following pages. After  Wiliam's own personal study and contemplation of George’s writings, he has found the essence of  Peter's approach to Freemasonry to encompass the principles of Brotherhood, Education and Service. Like Peter,  Edwards' believes that by being committed to creating a culture that nurtures brotherhood, education and service, this will allow the Power and Passion of Freemasonry to flourish.
