It was wonderful to see such a good turnout for our Lenten program last Wednesday featuring Peter Wood. This coming Wednesday, please join us for supper at 5:15 p.m. followed by a concert of music for marimba. Our guest is a friend of mine from the University of West Florida, Vivienne Boudreaux. You really do not want to miss this exciting and unusual program! Don’t know what a marimba is? Read about them here.
