Understanding the 2020 Census W20

Free

with Hannah Bard

Calendar Feb 10, 2020 at 9 am, runs for 8 weeks

Your response in the 2020 Census is critical to help our communities and state. What does the Census do? ? The Census determines how many House of Representatives each state can elect to represent their state in Congress. ? The Census helps determine the amount of federal funding each community receives. ? The Census helps communities plan for community needs like new roads, schools, and emergency services. ? The Census helps businesses determine the best place to open their business. Who should complete the Census? The census will count everyone living in the United States and is collected by household. Therefore, everyone living in all 50 states is required by law to be counted in the 2020 Census. The census survey collects information by household – so parents will complete the census for any dependents living in their household. How can I complete the census survey? There are three options to participate in the census: ? Online ? By phone ? By mail What if I do not have a computer and Internet at home, but would like to do it online. Can I?

Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education will have open computer lab hours every other Tuesday, Feb. through May 2020, for anyone to come in and participate in the census. There will be a designated staff member available to assist with any questions.

Reflexology Messalonskee W20

$41

with Mary Patterson,CR,RYT-200

Calendar Feb 24, 2020 at 5:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

(Please note there has been a significant day and date change.)  This class will give you an introduction to reflexology, and how it can be used for wellness and healing in the entire body, as well as how to use it specifically for relaxation, sleep, and back and neck tension. There are reflex points in the hands and feet that correspond to all different parts of the body.  Working these reflex points is a great tool for self-healing and promotes wellness in the corresponding area in the body.  It works largely by increasing circulation and balancing the nervous system.  Students will learn basic reflex points and practice techniques they can use easily at anytime for self-healing.  We have found that it is fun to join with a friend, but it is not a prerequisite.  Storm make up night will be a night other than Monday and be decided as a class.  Limit 20 students.
