Islamic Center of Fredericksburg (ICOF) will host a follow-up community meeting at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, 2015, to discuss the proposed building of a new mosque. The meeting will be held at Riverbend High School, 12301 Spotswood Furnace Rd. in Fredericksburg.

During a long planned community meeting on November 17, 2015, some in the room became belligerent, “making racist and anit-Muslim statements,” according to ICOF board members.

A Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office deputy disbanded the meeting after about an hour, when tempers continued to escalate. Supervisor Timothy McLaughlin, who was present, suggested a later meeting at a larger venue. The planned new mosque is in his district.
