Albany -- The director of the First Tee Golf Program in Albany says they need volunteer help to reach their goals in 2007.

 First Tee director Durante Kirby told the Albany Rotary Club Thursday that the program's first year of service has been very successful. Kirby said they have 150 members in their youth development program, that uses the game of golf to teach life lessons.

 But he says they need more volunteers for the new year. Kirby said "our fund raising efforts. Our efforts to recruit youth. Everything that we have going on, we want this to be a community project, and we want everybody to be a part of it."

Kirby says First Tee in Albany plans to host several youth golf tournaments and host summer camps in 2007.
