at State Fair
By JESSICA WILLIAMS-GIBSON
The Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper stands by its promise to “prepare a conscious community today and beyond” and will carry out that promise during Community Avenue.
The historic paper has partnered with the Indiana State Fair for the first time to bring residents, especially the minority community, information regarding health and education, two issues in that community that are in need of help.
“We picked the topics of health and education because these are two very critical areas that our community will either grow or waver,” said Jeffrey Clark, vice president of sales and marketing for the Recorder.
The State Fair also realizes the need to seize an opportunity to provide fairgoers with food, fun and information and is glad to have Community Avenue as a part of the annual event.
“The fair in itself is appealing, but we want to help the Recorder reach the minority population that we are always looking to build,” said Andy Klotz, director of publicity and media relations for the State Fair. “We reach so many people. If they have something they want to get out to the public, that’s where we mesh well with the corporate world. Businesses like the Recorder see a great opportunity.”
Everyone can check out Community Avenue at the fair Wednesday Aug. 15 and 16 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. where individuals can take part in health services and information and education materials.
Vendors chosen for Community Avenue providing information and services include:
- Aug. 15 – IU Oral Health, Managed Health Services Indiana, and Lilly Clinic.
- Aug. 16 – Herron High School, Indiana Wesleyan University, Kipp Indianapolis College Prep.
