Avis Y. Jackson wrote the proposal for and was awarded, the GRPA grant 

that created The City of Riverdale Cultural Affairs Department Veterans Initiative "VET WEEK". With the help of local veteran organizations, department co-worker, Mr. Gary Fambrough and husband of 34 years SFC Willie J. Jackson, collectively we connected the dots, designed and serviced the local community veterans needs. Our mission was to create a camaraderie of a social and recreation environment where the Veterans could come together and share stories, contact information and connect with beneficial support organizations that could provide assistance with veteran benefits. With the assistance of Clayton County GRPA Association grant and local city administration approval Vet Week became an annual initiative for several years. We thank all of our sponsors who participated in the activities each year to show support to our veterans.
