Census Day is April 1st, and will be celebrated with events across the country. The City of Saraland is hosting several “Lunch and Learn” sessions, as well as a “Family Census Fun Day” event to help residents get ready for the once-in-a-decade census count. Saraland City Council members Dr. Veronica Hudson and Newton Cromer stopped by our studio to talk about the events, and why the 2020 census is so important.

Census participation is directly linked to the city’s growth. The need for things like a new fire department, new businesses & restaurants, more jobs, more funding for school lunches, or new roads depend on census participation. The number of representatives and/or the need for additional congressional seats are linked to census participation. 

Help the city of Saraland make the 2020 census count! If you need help filling out the 200 census, or need access to a computer to do so, and you live in the city of Saraland – several lunch and learn events are planned to accommodate you. These events are only for Saraland residents. The lunch and learn events are educational events, therefore they are for adults only. In April, the city of Saraland is hosting a Family Fun Census Day event for the entire family that will include food and fun activities.
