ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany grandparents celebrated Christmas with the city's Recreation and Parks Department and got some valuable tips on how to stay safe this holiday season.

More than one hundred grandparents participated in the seventh annual Christmas with Grandparents Day program. They gathered this morning at Lockett Station Community Center for some fellowship and fun. The Albany Police Department's Gang task force was there with some safety tips.

"If something is going on in their neighborhood, they know to be aware. Today they will learn about different gang signs, what to look for, you know if they see anything out there just call 911 or call 311 information and they will connect them to the gang task force," said Tee Taylor, Albany Recreation and Parks Department Recreation Director.

More than a dozen sponsors help provide gifts so no one went home empty handed after the holiday celebration.
