Cookin' in Quarantine

07 Apr 2020 10:48 AM | Kelita Alberts (Administrator)


We are starting to dig in the recipe books to find something new to cook for supper. It is interesting to see all the great dinner ideas on social media. We made Harlan's Burritos the other night and I had forgotten how much I loved that recipe. I believe more recipes will be attempted during our self quarantining. 

We should produce a Quarantine Cookbook that has all the best recipes we discovered during these days at home. I have been part of two cookbooks in my life and I can tell you... it is a lot of work, but so worth it. 

We are in the deep part of the 2020 Census and want to remind you that it is very important to complete your form. There are many ways to community will benefit from a complete census count. 

The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That includes the following -

  • Roads
  • Schools
  • Public Libraries
  • Medical & Emergency Care
  • Representation at the State and Federal level
  • Firefighters 
  • Food for Families

Census results affect planning and funding for healthcare—including programs such as Medicaid, Medicare Part B, State Children’s Health Insurance, and the prevention and treatment of substance abuse. 


In other news, the SBA is providing lots of information to small businesses. We are posting the forms and press releases as we receive them on our front page of the website. We will continue to provide you with updates to all information.

Thank you to our community volunteers as they provide leadership during this unusual time in our lives
