Roselle Park “National Night Out” @ Michael Mauri Gazebo Park
Aug 6 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Borough of Roselle Park presents the 19th “National Night Out” on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Michael Mauri Gazebo Park, Chestnut Street.

National Night Out is a community-building event that aims to include everyone in Roselle Park. The event is sponsored by the Roselle Park Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch program, a group that wants to do more than just crime prevention, but instead create a “community network to provide a safer place to live.” 

The Roselle Park Police Department, Fire Department, and Union County EMS invite you and your family to learn about safety. Some of the safety topics will be bike, water, crime, and fire safety. You can also enjoy live music, games, and free giveaways. Police cars and trucks, as well as fire trucks will join the National Night Out, so that children can learn more about the vehicles.

The evening should truly be an affair for the whole family to enjoy. Do not forget to turn your porch light on that evening to show your support against crime. 

For more information, please call Detective Rich Cocca at 908-245-6187 or [email protected].

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.
