The City of Roanoke and local partners are hosting a series of community events to participate in Welcoming America’s national Welcoming Week campaign between Sept. 13 and Sept. 22. The public is invited to join City officials and other community members for the kickoff of Roanoke’s Welcoming Week at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 13, at the Roanoke City Market Building in downtown Roanoke.
