      Thursday afternoon Albany leaders and community residents attended the grand opening for the Kay H. Hind Senior Life Enrichment Center.

      The center is a place where people over the age of 60 can come and mingle with each other, eat lunch, and enjoy physical activity.

      Kay Hind, the executive director for the SOWEGA Council on Aging says it took million to construct the structure.

      The federal government provided over $800,000 towards the project.

      Officials say not only is the center useful for older adults but it has also helped clean up the community.

      The land was donated to the SOWEGA Council on Aging from Phoebe.

      During Thursday's ceremony, Joel Wernick, the CEO of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital said "Welcome to the community."
