Please take time today, if you have not already done so, to complete your 2020 Census Questionnaire.  The Warm Springs community has historically been undercounted by the Census.      Do your part to make sure we all let the census know that we are here and WE COUNT.  This Friday and Next Friday the Warm Springs Complete Count Committee will have a drive thru recognition for people who have done the Census for their household.  If you have filled out the paper form and mailed it in or done the census online – you can pick up a thank you gift and lunch.  The Census Thank You events will be from 11am – 2pm in the parking lots at the Community Center, the Simnasho Longhouse or the Seekseequa Fire Hall.  If you haven’t done your Census yet – get it done by Friday to get a thank you item.
