RelyLocal-Wausau-Facebook_Timeline_Template_851x315_v2_September-20145I took a little road trip this morning to visit a client. While driving north, I found it amazing that the trees are starting to change. But I suppose as the summer is winding down and that fall is just around the corner, that the seasonal change is among us. There are so many changes this week: the seasons, weather, trees; it makes me wonder what other changes are next.

One thing that hasn’t changed is CommUNITY Fest. The United Way of Marathon County’s annual kick off is back for another year, and better than ever. The Kid kid friendly festival is this Saturday September 20th at the Eastgate hall in Marathon Park. Fun, Games, 5K run and United We Can sculptures. Read more on the Buy Local ‪Wausau‬ Blog:
