Why should we care about the census? Most of us know the answer to that. But how can we help to make the 2020 census reliable? The League of Women Voters is sponsoring a meeting with a census expert, Peg McDonough, on Wednesday, March 11, 7 p.m. (to about 8), at the Lower Room of St. John's Church, Park St. We don't need reservations, but if you are interested in coming, or know others who are interested, it would be helpful to know so we can arrange the refreshments!
