The 2016 Merrill Historical History Hunt takes place Saturday, April 30.

Participants are given the routes to follow as you search for clues to solve the fantasy crime. You don’t have to know anything about Merrill history to have a good time.
Registration is $15 a person, with a minimum team size of two persons. Prizes and raffl e will be given away at the After Party where the crime will be solved and refreshments will be available for purchase.
For further information on the programs and activities of the Merrill Historical Society, or to become a member, contact the society at 715-536-5652 or merrillhs@frontier.com, or visit www.merrillhistory.org.
5-4-20165-4-2016‘Walk-In’ to support public schools
I would like to invite the Tomahawk community, students, staff and parents to “Walk-In” with me in support of our wonderful Tomahawk public schools. On May 4, communities across the nation will gather before the bell to walk into their schools together in a show of solidarity.
We are lucky to live in a community that values education and will do what it takes to provide quality education to our children. However, public schools are increasingly threatened by a view of education that supports less funding and a dramatic expansion of unaccountable private school voucher programs. Together we will “walk-in” to support public education that prioritizes equity and well-resourced, world class, public community schools. Our message to our local and state politicians is to act now to reform our school funding formula.
