What’s Cooking in Lake Worth Beach:

I care about City of Lake Worth Beach. And every day I meet others who care about our community as much as I do. They often ask, “What can I do to make a difference?” This year, the answer is easy. You can make a difference by participating in the 2020 Census. That’s because the census informs how billions of dollars are allocated every year to health clinics, schools, affordable housing, and hundreds of other critical services and programs that make a difference in our lives every day. It only takes a few minutes, but the impact will be felt for years. When you receive an invitation from the U.S. Census Bureau, complete the simple questionnaire online, by phone, or by mail. And the census only occurs once every ten years, so don’t miss out on your chance to make a difference. Make It Count Lake Worth Beach!

Thank you for tuning in to the first episode of News Worthy, the news worth watching in Lake Worth Beach.
