Several years ago, my family and I had the opportunity to attend an Annie Moses Band concert at North Florida Community College in Madison, Florida. We had never heard of the group. We knew it was a family of musicians, and that there would be singing and people playing instruments like violins, piano and percussion. It had been a long week and the four of us talked about not going, even though we already had tickets. Ultimately, we decided to go. By the end of the first song, we were very glad we were there.
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in August, the community gathered for the groundbreaking of the Marion Polk Ceramics Shop.
