Senior Center Raises Funds

September 14, 2007

Albany - - The people who use an east Albany senior citizens center are doing their part to keep the financially struggling center afloat.

The Gray Senior Center held its first Game Night Friday evening. The fundraiser brought out members of the center as well as friends and family for a night of food, fun, and games.

Charlie Jenkins who often stops by to interact with members came back Friday night to show support.  

"I am in that age group and can communicate with the people from backgrounds in which I came...and enjoy the community I live in and the people I live with and I enjoy communicating with the people that come out here to have lunch," says 80 year old Charlie Jenkins.

It takes $75,000 a year to run the center. The city and county provided $40,000. The center is also holding a Barbecue Cook Off fundraiser next month. 

Anyone whose interested in participating can call the center at 434-9690.
