2020 Census Beginning in March — March 6, 2020

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau undertakes a mammoth task: counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for our community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals, schools), how we plan for the future, and our voice in government. Needless to say, each and every American should participate in this process.

Ninety-five percent of households will receive an initial invitation to respond to the 2020 Census in the mail beginning the week of March 12th. Depending on how likely your areas is to respond online, you’ll receive either an invitation encouraging you to respond online or an invitation along with a paper questionnaire. For the first time, in 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online. The process will be quick and secure. You can respond to the census in less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. You’ll still be able to respond by mail if that’s the method you prefer.

Every household that hasn’t already responded will receive additional reminders and will eventually receive a paper questionnaire. To make this process easier and less costly please try to participate as promptly as possible.

Last Cabaret Concert of the Season – Whiskey, Wine and Coke this Sunday — March 4, 2020

It’s hard to believe that the winter – and the City of Groton Cabaret Concert series – is almost over. It feels like both hardly even began. But the good news is we have one more indoor show this season before we blast into our summer Concerts in the Park series beginning in June. We are very excited to bring back a local favorite – Whiskey, Wine and Coke – to play of us this Sunday, March 8th in the City of Groton Auditorium beginning at 3:00 p.m.

Whiskey, Wine and Coke is the acoustic trio version of the popular local band Coyote River Band. Renee, Dave and Dean love to break out their acoustic guitars to bring music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to crowds throughout the state. Whiskey, Wine and Coke covers music by The Beatles, Carly Simon, Hall & Oates, Etta James and much more – including country music. So if you enjoy the intimacy of an acoustic trio, join us for a musical trip down memory lane. The City Cabaret concert series is co-sponsored and co-produced by Groton Utilities and the City of Groton Parks and Recreation Department.
