COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus seniors gathered at the Civic Center on Wednesday for the tenth annual Seniors and Law Enforcement Together Senior Summerfest.

The event is meant to educate senior citizens about law enforcement in the area and to provide them with some entertainment.

Summerfest was created as a way to help seniors avoid any kind of scams, and to help seniors feel safe and aware as they live their day-to-day lives.

"A lot of information is being provided and made available for seniors in the community," said attendee Delbra Grier. "It's good to know that law enforcement is involved and that they are concerned about the community… and in some cases the community is not contacting them making them aware of the various things that they should be involved in."

The Summerfest is also a way to honor seniors in the community and to make them feel appreciated and loved.
