Stop by Flossmoor Hills School for a Census Swag Bag on Friday! We’re entering the home stretch for the 2020 Census, which officially ends September 30. Responding to the Census is critical for our community because it determines federal and state funding for the next ten years. If you haven’t responded, you can easily respond by visiting my2020census.gov. If you have responded, tell your neighbors and friends to do the same. Help spread the word by sporting a tie dye Census t-shirt. Village of Flossmoor staff will be in front of Flossmoor Hills Elementary from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, September 4 to hand out Census 2020 swag bags, including a t-shirt and a tie dye kit! Stop by to grab your kit for a little DIY tie dye project over the long weekend. Village staff can also help you respond to the Census while you’re there.
