The 7:15 p.m. game will be Strobes Garage and Bean’s Evergreen Disposal. The 8 p.m. game will pit Werner Insurance and Chad’s Auto. The night cap will have Mueller Builders battling Louie/Werner.

Virtual Book Club

Join the Marathon County Public Library virtually for the monthly book club at the Rothschild Branch in June when participants will discuss author Elin Hilderbrand’s novel, “The Identicals.”

Nantucket is only two and a half hours away from Martha’s Vineyard by ferry. But the two islands might as well be worlds apart for a set of identical twin sisters who have been at odds for years. But when a family crisis forces them to band together - or at least appear to - the twins come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the resentments that have driven them apart.

The county library is taking physical distancing pre- cautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus so this discussion will be held virtually. That means you don’t have to live in Rothschild - anyone is welcome to participate! Call 715-359-6208 for information on how to participate via online video chat or by telephone.
