It’s in our hands

Friends is lending hands 2010 census

Friends is partnering with the Census workers in hopes of doing what we can to have a successful 2010 census of our own Paint Lick area. So far it has served a number of folks who wanted to ask questions and get additional information. We have been surprised at how many seemed to have been missed in the first mailings of census forms.

FOPL building has been a Census Questionaire Center since March 19. John Garn, a Census representative, has been available each day the building is open (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday). Dozens of individuals have been helped by providing forms and answering questions. John will be here until April 19. Later he will serve as an Enumerator – to visit those addresses that haven’t responded. Though many are hesitant about the visit, they will only be asked how many persons were residing there on April 1.
