Absentee voting

Village of Marathon City administrator Andy Kurtz recommends local citizens submit mail-in absentee ballots for the May 12 congressional special election and for future elections, as well. The village, he said, has produced three videos located on the village’s website that explain to voters exactly how to request, fill out and send back an absentee ballot.

The videos are located at https://www.marathoncity. org/government/voting/vot- ing-video-guides/

Teacher motorcade

Staff at Marathon Area Elementary School and Marathon Venture Academy plan to hold a teacher motorcade through Marathon City on Thursday, April 23, starting at 4 p.m.

The motorcade will give students an opportunity to see their teachers while practicing social distancing.

Computer help

Marathon County Public Library staff can provide assistance in a variety of areas, including basic computer skills, saving and moving digital files, using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.), social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), using the library’s online resources and more.

Due to precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID- 19 virus, the library has halted one-on-one, face-toface appointments. However, you can contact staff at the Wausau reference desk at 715-261-7230 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday; send an email to and describe the assistance you need (try to be specific) ; participate in live chat between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday- Friday.

Scouting for Food

The Marathon Scouts BSA Troop 458 Scouting for Food program is being changed this year to accommodate the disruption of the COVID-19 virus. Instead of picking up food for the Edgar/Marathon Circle of Joy, the troop will take cash donations for the food pantry through Thursday, April 30.

This decision has been made by the Samoset Council to ensure that Scouts remain safe, while the Scouting for Food program goes on.

All of the dollars raised will be directed to the Marathon/ Edgar Circle of Joy. If you’d like to send a check, make it out to Circle of Joy, c/o Darlene Berg, P.O. Box 309, Edgar, WI 54426, or you may text “give food” to 844-615-4269 to donate now or visit www.samoset. org/SFF

Heritage Center

The Marathon City Heritage Center will not be open in April and May due to COVID- 19.
