Best of Marathon a celebration of democracy and community

Freedom. Liberty. Democracy. Merriment.

These principals are the cornerstones of what has become a symbol of the purest form of democracy in the city of Marathon.

For 2016 Keys Weekly are teaming with the Rotary Club of Marathon to produce the one event that brings the community together to celebrate the accomplishments and hard work of our friends and neighbors. The event 
is sponsored by Marathon Garbage Service, Promotions Guy, Coldwell Banker/Schmitt, Sam Williams, and the Florida Keys Country Club.

Paper voting concludes on Monday, Aug. 22 and the top three finalists will face off in a web-based election beginning Friday, Aug. 26.

The winners will be announced at the Best of Marathon Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 24 when the Rotary Club and The Weekly hand out community awards honoring individuals and businesses for their efforts at the brand new Marathon City Hall!

All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Rotary Club to support local scholarships and community projects.
