Music Funeral Services sponsors a holiday meal for our Therapeutics division which serves individuals with special needs.

  • We are honored that South Georgia Business + Culture Magazine did this fantastic story on VLPRA as an economic engine. It's a thrill to say that the Authority brought in $6 million in economic impact last year- nearly $2 million more than our overall operating budget. We're at over $2.5 million so far for 2017. #NationalTravelAndTourismWeek is a perfect time to celebrate those successes with our community partners, including the Valdosta-Lowndes County Conference Center and Tourism Authority!

  • This field is the same one that is coming to Freedom Park thanks to a fantastic partnership with The Miracle League of Valdosta and VLPRA. It wouldn't be possible without all the selfless donors who have given generously to the project. We hope to break ground later this year. Want to know more about the complex and how you can help?
