Albany - - People who lived in one Albany neighborhood years ago returned Friday night  to celebrate their history.

The 4th reunion for the CME community kicked off at the Hines Family Life Center. The neighborhood got is name from the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.

People who lived in the neighborhood years ago thought it would be a good idea to re-unite with old friends.  

"We decided well it would be a good idea if we can get something together and get those people together that grew up in the 40s and 50s over here because we were such a close knit community at that time," says organizer Rena Parker.

Assistant District Attorney Greg Edwards spoke to the group about the significant impact many of these people left on the Albany community. The reunion lasts through the weekend.
