CENSUS 2010 – BE COUNTED!
The 2010 Census is here and you need to stand-up and be counted! There has been commercial after commercial with regards to the upcoming 2010 Census and now the time is finally here. Did you receive a letter in the mail? I did this past week. It informed me that I would be receiving a letter in the next week that needed to be completed and returned. So, when you receive the letter in your mailbox asking you to complete the census and return, please do it for yourself and for your family.

BIX BIRTHDAY BASH ANOTHER SUCCESS!
From sea to shining sea! That may not have been one of Bix’s songs, but it sure rang true to today’s crowd at the Bix Birthday Bash! Visitors from all over the country filled the rooms and lined the halls of the Fairmount Branch Library today to sing happy birthday to Bix. While a majority of the crowd was from the Quad City area, there were also people from California and Florida and a few states in between. All of them toe tapping and singing, having cake, coffee and punch, and celebrating one the greatest jazz musicians ever! If you missed today’s event, don’t worry in about four months you can help kick-off this year’s Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival at the 23rd Annual Bix Porch Party on Thursday, July 22 at 11:30 a.m. at the Main Library.
