If you have ever watch a Habitat for Humanity home being built, you will be awestruck at how nothing becomes something in no time flat. One day there is nothing but dirt. Then rebar, frame, and slab are put in place.

This last Sunday afternoon (February 22), Mason was treated to an exceptional musical performance at the First United Methodist Church. The Piatigorsky Foundation provided the artist, a Texas born New Yorker, who delivered a splendid performance for those in attendance. Sometimes, classical piano concerts can be a little stuffy and the music can be beyond the tastes of many of us non-musicians.
