Every ten years the Census
Bureau has counted every resident in the United States. What is this so important? The data that will be collected from
the 2020 Census is critical for States, Counties, and Communities for: Representation. Census Data determines the number of seats each
state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as districts for
State government. Funding. Census Data guides federal spending allocation of
approximately $589 billion to local communities every year. Full participation in the upcoming 2020 Census will provide our
community vital information about who we are and what our community needs.
It will take all of us coming together to ensure every Lindstrom resident

gathered is kept confidential according to Title 13, U.S. Code which clearly
states It is against the law to disclose or publich any private

The Census Bureau collects information to produce statistics.
Key things to keep in mind as we approach the 2020 Census are if you travel
during the winter, be sure to use that State of your permanent residency as
you complete the form. Every housing unit will received a post card to
respond online from the Census Bureau. Also, keep in mind that the
Census form will not be mailed to PO boxes. If you have use of a PO
Box for mail, you will need to look for your Census form on your doorknob.
Through much thought and deliberation for the
health and safety of residents and visitors and with much regret, it has
been determined to cancel this year's Harmony in the Park(click here
for updates on Harmony In The Park Facebook page) and traditional
2020 Karl Oskar Days (click here
for updates on KOD Facebook page) events. The intent of these events is to
bring crowds of people together which is exactly what is detrimental right
now due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. In addition, both events would
be held during the peak of the Coronavirus in Minnesota that is expected to
be the end of June to mid-July. We sincerely appreciate and thank our
sponsors. Donations that have been received for 2020 will roll over to the
2021 season unless designated otherwise. We look forward to seeing everyone
in 2021. Until then, stay safe and healthy.

in 1894, Lindstrom MN was first settled by Daniel
who left Sweden for America in 1853. Among the Swedish
Emigrants was Erik Norelius, whose personal journals
(documented in part) formed the basis of Vilhelm Moberg's
novels of the Swedish Emigration to America. Moberg's
fictional heroes, Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, are
memorialized in statue at the west end of town as a
tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose
descendents continue to populate our area.
