Albany - Instead of going to grandma's house for the holidays, grandparents left home to spent time with each other.

Grandparents joined together at the Lockette Station Community Center. They left with a gift and a bag of goodies.

The ladies enjoyed reminiscing on what Christmas used to be like. Grandparent, Catherine Lawrence, says, "To me it means grandmothers who have nurtured children through the years to come in and share together some of the things they've done with their children and keep Christmas the way we understood it and enjoy what we enjoyed."

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department and Albany Police officers worked together to have "Christmas with Grandparents".

The police officers also handed out safety brochures that target senior citizens.
