The Jupiter Maltz Theater's latest production, 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,'  never had a chance to open due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Maltz Jupiter Theatre obtained special union permission to film the production professionally.

You may ask why it’s important- the 2020 census is important because it provides the government and businesses with a snapshot of our nation. Once complete, it will determine congressional representation, where hundreds of billions of dollars of federal funding is spent, and will provide data that will impact communities for the next DECADE.

Imagine you have ten years worth of lunches to plan, and someone tells you to plan it for 5 people, then 10 people actually show up. That wouldn’t make for very good planning, now would it? Count yourself IN so your community receives the funding it needs!

This is critically important because when it comes to the coronavirus seniors are very at risk.
