Learning about the US Census and having fun
Somerset County and Census 2020 are partnering to present a series of family fun carnivals for different communities. The free events include food, games and activities for children, table displays from different county and community service-providers, and information about Census 2020, including job opportunities and why it’s important to complete the upcoming Census. WinterFest events were conducted in Franklin in January and North Plainfield in February. SpringFest events will be conducted on March 21 in Somerville, and in April in Bound Brook. Pictured here is Somerset County Freeholder Brian Gallagher, right, talking with participants at the WinterFest in Franklin, at the Franklin Middle School.
