ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Salvation Army continues to celebrate 90 years of service in the Albany area. Children joined in on the fun during their Winter Fest Saturday.

Kids from the community bounced around on inflatable rides until they were exhausted. And when they needed to refuel, they ate snow cones, hot dogs and popcorn.

Workers at the Salvation Army say they are happy for their successful past and they're ready to put in another 90 years.

"We are still here serving, maybe the people behind the scenes, the people who don't get enough of the attention. But we are still here serving the common man, the homeless, the forgotten man, the children you see here, the people that each and every day come through our doors," said Captain Douglas McClure. 

Celebrations will come to a close Sunday with a worship service at the Salvation Army Church. Major William Mockabee, the state commander of Georgia, will be the guest speaker. The Salvation Army began serving the Albany community February 2, 1919.
