CENSUS JOB FAIR! @ Casano Community Center
Oct 23 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
CENSUS JOB FAIR! @ Casano Community Center | Roselle Park | New Jersey | United States

Roselle Park – The Borough of Roselle Park and the U.S. Census Bureau will be co-hosting a job fair for residents interested in working for the U.S. Census Bureau in late 2019 and early 2020.

The 2020 Census Job Fair is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Casano Community Center (314 Chestnut Street).

At this job fair and information session, people will be able to learn about why the census is important to their community and find out what job opportunities are available to the residents of Roselle Park. Applications can be completed online. Applicants can even use their smartphones to apply. Census staff will be available to help with the application and answer questions.

The U.S. Census Bureau is looking to hire 63,000 people in the state of New Jersey for a variety of positions. There are field positions (e.g. enumerators) and office positions (e.g. clerks and IT specialists) available. The hours are flexible. Once hired you give the U.S. Census Bureau your hours of availability each week and you will only be asked to work during those hours. You are paid for training as well.

The goal of the 2020 census is to “count everyone once, only once, and in the right place,” the Census Bureau says. The United States holds a census every 10 years.

Those interested in a 2020 census job can apply online at www.2020census.gov/jobs.

Santa’s Parade of Lights @ Roselle Park, NJ | Roselle Park | New Jersey | United States

On Friday, December 4th, at 7 pm, Roselle Park is hosting Santa’s Parade of Lights. The parade will feature Santa Claus and will pause near the intersection of Chestnut Street and Grant Avenue, near Michael J. Mauri Park, for a quick, ceremonial Christmas Tree lighting.

The parade will be lead by the lights and sirens of the Roselle Park Police Department, followed by a float consisting of the Mayor and Council and Councilmembers-elect, followed by the lights and sirens of the Roselle Park Fire Department, followed by “New Jersey Jeep Flow” playing festive holiday music, and finally a float with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus welcoming the holiday season.

For the safety of all, parade participants will be limited only to the above-listed groups and individuals. Residents are encouraged to watch from their front porches, yards, or sidewalks as the parade passes by. In the alternative, while being sure to maintain social distancing, residents may choose to watch the parade pass by at a scenic watchpoint in one of the Borough’s parks or open spaces along the route below.

“As the Covid-19 cases rise in our community, it is important we do our best to keep the spirit of the holidays alive,” said Roselle Park Mayor Joe Signorello. “Although our children are not able to meet Santa in-person and tell him their Christmas wishes this year, we hope seeing Santa ride through their neighborhood will bring joy and smiles to our children’s faces during these challenging times.”
