Located on the Rappahannock River, in the state of Virginia, FREDERICKSBURG is situated 50 miles (80 km) south of Washington D.C.

VT Members came from far and wide to attend the "Fredericksburg VT Meet".
Hans and I arrived early on Wednesday.
The "Meet & Greet" was held Thursday at the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill. We had our very own room - the Wakefield Room - which was fantastic as it was so cozy there and we had more opportunity to meet and talk with everyone. Zana and family put on a wonderful spread of typical Virginia fare. Also we had our very first "Skype-In" where many VT members who were unable to attend, could at least talk to and see our members. This was a wonderful experience, esp for our Aussie friends.
Friday, a few of our members went to Lake Anna Winery.
Saturday, a few of our members went to Luray Caverns.
Saturday night was at the TruLuv's Restaurant.
All in all, a great time was had and it was great to see old friends and make many more new ones.
Located at 905 Princess Anne Street, ST. GEORGE'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH was established in 1720. The present building was built in 1849 and is a fine example of Romanesque Revival style of architecture popular in the mid 19th century. During the early period in St. George's history (1738) the family of George Washington moved to the area and they, as well as friends and relations, attended services here.
Throughout more than 285 years, St. George's has been an active force in the community and continues to do so.
