The first meeting of the VIA was held April 26, 1895, with 14 women present. Since that time the VIA has grown in size and scope to its present membership of 300 members.

Some of the benefits of belonging to the VIA include:

  • Participating in the community, its improvement, growth or change
  • Pursuing cultural and artistic interests
  • Sharing in the camaraderie of others and thereby finding that the community in which we reside is a place in which we truly “live”
