ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Services available to people with disabilities will be put on display in Albany this weekend.  A disability resource fair will be held at Brooks Center at 1120 West Broad Avenue Saturday, featuring community agencies and organizations that specialize in services for adults and children.

Attorney Charles Lamb serves on the board of the Albany Advocacy Resource Center.  He also has a disability.  He said, "I have kind of a personal interest in terms of the types of cases that I deal with in working with folks with disabilities and it means a lot to me and I think I relate to those folks pretty well."

The disability fair runs from 9 AM until 2 PM Saturday.  Door prizes will be given away for people who bring in a nonperishable food item.
