Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics. It counts Merchantville's population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs. Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. Your community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. The Census 2020 NJ Coalition is a statewide outreach and awareness campaign to coordinate nonprofit and community-based efforts to ensure an accurate 2020 Census count for our state.
Calling all Artists to the 3rd Annual Merchantville Art Walk. This year’s Art Walk will take place on May 1st, 6:00-9:00 p.m. It will be paired with the "First Friday“ market events in town. What is an Art Walk? Each participating business will share their space with a local artist and the artist’s work will be on display inside of the business for the night. The Art Walk encourages guests to stroll around town and visit each participating business to see, and hopefully, purchase the art. The goal is to benefit Artists AND Businesses. The fee for artists to participate is $25. Application deadline: March 14, 2020. All sales are handled by the artists and are 100% yours. The Eilandarts Center will organize pairing artists with businesses and coordinating the hanging of the show. We will also take care of the website, advertising, flyers, and postcards
