The public is invited to a discussion on voter engagement activities and preparations for the 2020 census, and the Florist Club is sponsoring the event in partnership with the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials and Georgia Mountain Unitarian Universalist Church Faith in Action.
This meeting comes on the heels of a Florist Club event on Monday, March 4, with members of the Gainesville Police Department about increased patrols along Park Hill Drive following a string of crimes in the area this year, including the shooting of a prominent businessman outside a CVS Pharmacy and an armed robbery at a Texaco gas station.
