Discover the vibrant 120-year history of the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown. Then, Now & Forever tells the story of the women of the VIA and their founding of Doylestown Hospital.
The film "tells the journey of the zealous women who brought healthcare and wellness to the forefront of the Central Bucks community," said Kimberly Cambra, VIA member and executive director of CB Cares Educational Foundation, who initiated the film project. It took about two years to complete.
Since its inception in 1895, the VIA not only launched Doylestown Hospital but also funded a traveling nurse program, the region's first ambulance and managed the James-Lorah Memorial Home in Doylestown. The documentary details the history of the VIA through interviews and photographs.
Proceeds of the June 1 event benefit the mission of the VIA, which is to "enhance the quality of life in our community through service and education."
