We had 105 players on a rainy evening, with plenty of help on the floor and in the kitchen, thanks to some extra coverage from Lester Gilpin, Ernie and Anna Wren, plus Anna's friend Ale.
Lena Long helped Rick and Bryan make a wonderful breakfast this morning, with pork chops instead of our normal sausage and her own special gravy.
Our speaker this morning was Mike Bollinger, who is an area recruiter for Boone, Cole, and Randolph counties for the upcoming 2020 census. He is looking to hire fourteen hundred census workers in Boone county alone.
Interested people must be at least eighteen years old, have a valid Social Security number, and be a United States citizen. The positions allow for flexible hours which start at $14 per hour and pay weekly, along with $.58 per mile if your work requires you to use your personal vehicle. Once you are hired, positions will be eight week-long sections, with the ability of continuing into another section if you are interested after your original eight weeks ends. The application in online at 2020census.gov/jobs.
The census has occurred every ten years since it started in 1790 and counts where everyone in the United States resides on a single date. All information is available to anyone and is used by the government to apportion Federal funds and Congressional districts. The information is also used by local government to plan new schools and hospitals, by businesses to decide where to expand, and by real estate developers to plan new housing areas.
Mailings will go out in mid-March 2020, with the majority of citizens responding online, by phone, or by mail to answer the questions regarding their status as of April 1st, 2020. Part of the job that Mike is recruiting for to make personal visits to people who do not respond by any of those methods. There are also office positions to key in responses as they are received.
After Mike was finished answering questions and sharing information, he drew for the Attendance drawing. Connie Field, Roy Williams, and Robert Blake missed more than just a fine breakfast, but the pot will continue to grow!
