Albany - Senior citizens clocked more than 90,000 volunteer hours this year. Tuesday, they were honored for their kindness.

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program held an appreciation luncheon for its 973 volunteers. The volunteers donate their time at hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and with other organizations across South Georgia.

Al Krause was honored for driving disabled veterans to the doctor. "I am a disable veteran myself and know what other veterans went through," said Krause. Krause was one of 6 people who volunteered more than 1000-hours this year.
