Newspaper Articles and Blogs about/by the AVVBA

Because the AVVBA has been an active force in the Atlanta community since 1981, we either generate publicity on our own or have been the focus of media stories on events that we participate in, over and above the memorial dedications for which we may be best known.

Please check this page from time to time, as you will find new articles created by others or blogs created internally about many of the exciting events the AVVBA members participate in.
