ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some senior citizens are getting to celebrate Valentine's Day a little early.

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department held its 14th annual Senior Valentine Bingo Breakfast Wednesday.

Guests age 50 and up were invited to the Civic Center to eat and play Bingo for prizes. Organizers said a big crowd showed up despite the weather.

"It's just a day for the seniors to come out and just have fun, meet new people that they can get to know instead of staying at home," said Supervisor Tee Taylor.

Guests were also given roses to celebrate Valentine's Day. Organizers said it's important to do something special for South Georgia seniors.
