ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Dozens of Albany grandparents were honored with a special luncheon and Christmas party Monday.
At the Lockett Station Community Center, about 100 grandparents were honored with a special lunch of chicken and vegetables.
This is the 10th year for the event. Organizers say it's a great time for seniors in the area to get out and get to know the community.
"It's good, because a lot of times, our grandparents are busy baby sitting. They don't have a chance to get to go out at night. So it's very important for them to have their time," said Supervisor Te Taylor.
The event wrapped up with a drawing that included a 32 inch flat screen TV.
