2020 Census Watch:
It’s almost time for the 2020 Census. Next week many residents will start receiving census info in the mail. A Census Worker will be delivering packets between March 15-April 10 to the homes of those with P.O. Boxes. Official Census Workers will have an ID Badge.
It is very important to return your census info, because the Census provides data that determines funding for roads, schools, healthcare, fire and police services in our communities. Don’t throw money away by not participating. You can complete the census on the phone, online or by mail. If you need assistance, help is available at the County Judges Office. Visit 2020census.gov
Don’t forget to spring forward and set your clocks up an hour for Daylight Savings Time at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8. This is also the time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
Madisonville First Cumberland Presbyterian Church and Rose Creek CP Church invite you to join them for Rebecca Zahrte’s ordination. The service will be held at 1540 Anton Road in Madisonville on Saturday, March 14 at 2 p.m. Special music will be performed by the Pritchett Chapel Praise Team and a meal will follow afterwards. Congratulations to Sister Becky on this special career accomplishment.
Remember to keep our veterans at the Eddie Ballard Western Kentucky Veterans Center (WKVC) in your prayers. I know they would appreciate a visit or card from you or your organization to thank them for their service and on special holidays. Send mail to WKVC, 926 Veterans Drive, Hanson, KY 42413. For info call 270-322-9087.
