ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A downtown Albany staple for almost 70 years is being honored on the City of Albany's annual Christmas ornament.

Easter Seals unveiled the 17th annual holiday ornament Monday afternoon, and it features Jimmie's Hot Dogs.

Jimmie's started as a simple hot dog stand in Albany in the 1940's.  The founder's grandchildren say it's an honor to have an ornament that will carry on the memory of their grandfather and all he stood for.

"Papa's philosophy was everybody was treated the same. There were no stools, nobody sat down. It was cash and carry. It didn't matter who you were, you got in line just like everybody else. Everybody was treated the same, and that was his philosophy," said Joe Kieve, Jimmie's grandson.

There is a limited supply of the ornaments.  You can get one at the Easter Seals building on Palmyra road for $15. 

The proceeds go to Easter Seals to pay for programs that help people with disabilities.
