Take a hike, find a rock

With the warm season finally upon us, events and activities abound throughout northern Rhode Island in the upcoming weeks. Why not take advantage of the slow start to a season of fun by enjoying a hike in one of the town’s many outdoor facilities including the playground at Stillwater Mill Complex, the Burrillville Bike Path, White Mill Park or Nipmuc River Trail.

In your travels, keep an eye out for Burrillville Rocks, colorful painted rocks, often containing positive messages. If you find one, be sure to take a picture and post it on the Burrillville Rocks Facebook page before you re-hide it!

Enjoy a playground, freshwater fishing and hiking trails at White Mill Park on East Wallum Lake Road in Pascoag.

Census takers coming Monday

If you haven’t filled out the 2018 Census, get ready for a visit in the upcoming weeks. Starting Monday, May 7, Census takers – known as enumerators – will begin to follow up with households that have not yet responded to the test, as part of the “Nonresponse Follow-up operation.” The majority will hit the field on Wednesday, May 9. Census Enumerators will be knocking on doors to collect data from the households on a handheld device.

To know if the person approaching your home is a enumerator, check for Census Credentials: ID cards printed on a white PVC cards that contain a passport-styled photo of the employee on a green background. The cards will have US DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE in black uppercase text, the employee name in red uppercase text and U.S. CENSUS BUREAU in black uppercase text.

Enumerators will also have a U.S. Census Bureau black canvass bag 16″x 12″. A horizontal 6″ band of white goes across the front of the bag printed “U.S. Census Bureau” with the official U.S. Department of Commerce Badge seal.

To verify an Enumerator’s employment, contact the Providence Area Census Office at (401) 415-4829.
