TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A senior center in Tifton is getting a makeover.

The Leroy Rogers Senior Center will use a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant to make major changes to the building.

"We're adding on so we can have more knitting classes, bridge classes, exercise rooms. We're probably going to double the size of our senior center," Mayor Jamie Cater, Tifton.

Work will start immediately and is expected to be finished late next year.
