Roundhouse open house planned for Aug. 21


Marshalltown High School will host an open house and tours of the renovated Roundhouse on Aug. 21.

The free public event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the same night as the annual Blue & White Classic football scrimmage at Leonard Cole Field.

The freshmen scrimmage will be held at 6 p.m., the youth Marshalltown Football League scrimmages at 6:30 p.m. and the Bobcat varsity scrimmage is at 7:30 p.m.

Admission to the scrimmages is a free will offering of a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the Emergency Food Box pantry or dog/cat food or cat litter to be donated to the Animal Rescue League.

The Bobcat Booster Club will be grilling and the concession stand will be open.

A big opening celebration for phase one of the Roundhouse work will be scheduled later in the fall.
