Members of the Georgia Americorps and the Albany Police Department served lunch and tips to senior citizens on Tift Avenue Thursday afternoon.

"What we're trying to do today is remind these senior citizens that they've done so much for us, and we're just trying to give back to them for all the things they've done for us," said Eugene Papa of Americorps.

Papa said the police department also gave the seniors tips on how to avoid getting scammed
