Senior Ride 2018 Holiday Gift Bag Project

Two weeks before Christmas our staff hand delivered gift bags to 100 of our elderly and disabled Senior Ride clients.  It was a privilege to meet and put faces to names & voices, but the smiles and hugs were the very best, priceless!  We are grateful to our friends at Viva Health for helping us with the Senior Ride Holiday Gift Project this year by holding a Christmas in July donation drive!

2019 Dixie Vintage Antique & Classic Car Show

THANK YOU DIXIE VINTAGE

For an amazing day of fun, wonderful friends, your long time support for Travelers Aid and of course, the most awesome classic cars!

The April 27th 2019 annual Dixie Vintage Antique & Classic Car Show was, once again, a successful event.  We appreciate all the work that went into the planning, the businesses that supported it, but most of all the Dixie Vintage club members who brought their cars out and most especially the many  volunteers who spent countless hours to make it such a success.
