The city of Indianapolis and United Way of Central Indiana will host the eighth annual Community Fair on Monument Circle from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11.
 
More than 140 area not-for-profits are expected to participate and provide information on volunteer opportunities. Also, Mayor Greg Ballard is scheduled to appear at the fair. 
 
“This event, in its eighth year, has proven time and time again to be extremely beneficial to our community, and I’m hopeful that citizens will once again take advantage of the learning opportunities presented by our outstanding community partners,” Ballard said in a prepared statement.

United Way CEO and President Ellen K. Annala said the event takes on renewed importance with the signing in April of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act to establish Sept. 11 as an annual National Day of Service and Remembrance.
 
At 10 a.m., The American Legion will sponsor a “legacy walk” to honor service members and veterans. The walk begins at the north steps of the Indiana War Memorial and ends at the Community Fair. The walk is free, but participants are encouraged to make a donation or pledge volunteer time to a local charity.
