Celebrating grandparents this Christmas

December 22, 2003

Albany - It's been said Christmas is for the kids, but that wasn't the case Monday. Some South Georgia grandparents unwrapped gifts from the Albany Parks and Recreation Department.

The seniors also enjoyed lunch and entertainment at the first "Christmas with Grandparents Day" event. "It's really nice.We enjoyed it, and it's a nice way to get away and meet people," said Molly Pratt.

The Albany Police Department also gave the seniors tips for staying safe during the holidays. Never leave valuables in the seats of your car while shopping because they can lure thefts. And try to shop with a friend because a theft is more likely to attack an elderly person who is alone.
