ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Sertoma International's new President picked Albany to visit for her first trip in that role. Julie Hejtmanek visited the Anchorage in Lee County this afternoon. She toured the facility which treats men with addictions. The three local Sertoma clubs have given money to the Anchorage and Hejtmanek says it's a good investment in the community.

She said, "I think very well spent. This facility is run strictly on donations. Corporate donations, community civic organizations such as Sertoma and private donations, so money well spent to help people in need and the success rate is incredible so yes, money well spent."

While in Albany, she will also visit the Lily Pad, a non-profit sexual assault and child abuse center.
