We are grateful to our friends at Peace United Methodist Church in Fredericksburg for making their facilities available to us on a number of occasions -- and especially to Peace Music Director Brenda Scott (shown at far right in the photo above), who provided the beautiful floral arrangements on the church altar on May 21 in honor of her grandsons and graciously left the flowers in place for us to enjoy during the Sunday afternoon Forte concert.
