Albany -- Southwest Georgia Senior citizens who volunteer in their community were honored Tuesday afternoon.

A recognition lunch was held to thank the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program members. 700 active volunteers from a 14 county region of Southwest Georgia contributed more than 100-thousand hours of service this year.

Like Ralph Hocutt, who helps build ramps to help people with mobility problems. Hocutt said "You bring a little joy to other people. And we meet a need." Since 1993, Hocutt and his ramp crew have built about eight ramps per month.

Senior Volunteers also help in South Georgia soup kitchens, hospice, boys and girls clubs, as part of an active retirement helping others.
