ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

SOWEGA Council on Aging leaders hope a new source of revenue will help them expand their services to more south Georgia seniors.

The Council held its annual meeting Thursday afternoon at the Senior Life Enrichment Center in Albany. It opened last year, and the council rents it out for community events.

"We were new here and we were still learning how to do things, and now we have anywhere from 100 to 200 people every day doing activities," said Executive Director of the Council on Aging Kay Hind.

The SOWEGA Council on Aging delivers programs and services to older adults in 14 area counties.
