Valley Program for Aging Services debuts new website designed by Auguta Free Press

vpasValley Program for Aging Services has a new website designed by Augusta Free Press highlighting its array of senior services in the Shenandoah Valley.

The new site, online at, merged 15 VPAS websites serving the agency’s senior centers and programs into one, with features allowing users to get updated information on activities, sign up for workshops and contribute financially to the centers individually or to the organization as a whole.

“This was a challenging project bringing together so many elements into one comprehensive website,” said Chris Graham, president of Augusta Free Press LLC, which offers website design, graphic design and marketing services to clients in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic.

VPAS has been a long-time web and marketing client of Augusta Free Press, dating back to 2009, when AFP designed the first website for the agency.

Augusta Free Press has also assisted VPAS with the development of annual reports, corporate reports and a variety of other marketing materials.

Team of Destiny: Inside UVA Basketball's improbable run

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

The book, with additional reporting by Zach Pereles, Scott Ratcliffe and Scott German, will take you from the aftermath of the stunning first-round loss to UMBC in 2018, and how coach Tony Bennett and his team used that loss as the source of strength, through to the ACC regular-season championship, the run to the Final Four, and the thrilling overtime win over Texas Tech to win the 2019 national title, the first in school history.


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
