More than 50 people were at the Lockett Station Community Center for the 6th Annual Christmas with Grandparents Day.
The Albany Recreation and Parks Department and the Albany Police Department put on the event every year to give seniors a chance to meet new friends, have fun and learn valuable safety tips.
They sang Christmas songs, listened to speakers and a few lucky ones walked away with a Christmas gift.
"We wanted it to be like for the senior to come out and have a good time and just sit back, relax and listen to the Christmas music," said Tee Taylor, Recreation Supervisor.
Albany Police encouraged seniors to stay safe during the holidays by using a buddy system when shopping and storing holiday purchases in a car trunk so they are less likely to be stolen.
