February 3: Ward & Neighborhood Organizational Meeting for the 2010 Census

The Ward 3 Neighborhood Association announces:

The 2010 Federal Census is coming in March and we want to raise awareness around the city about how easy, safe and important it is to complete. The city has created a Complete Count Committee [link] to help in that process. It has ordered materials that seek to inform and relieve the public about the Census. Volunteers are needed to distribute these materials around their neighborhoods and streets.

We will be having a meeting of volunteers to discuss the Census, why it is important to the city, and how to distribute information to neighbors on Wednesday, February 3rd at 7 PM at the Bridge St School Cafeteria. Please come to help in this grass-roots campaign to get everyone counted!

If you can’t make it but would like to help in your neighborhood or on your street, call Joel Spiro at 413-587-2271 or Owen Freeman-Daniels at 413-530-1054.

Northampton, MA: “2010 Federal Census Background”
In March of 2010, census forms will be delivered to every residence in the United States and Puerto Rico. When you receive yours, just answer the 10 short questions and then mail the form back in the postage-paid envelope provided. If you don’t mail the form back, you may receive a visit from a census taker, who will ask you the questions from the form. A census taker must follow-up in person with every address that doesn’t mail back the form in order to obtain the responses.
