Celebration planned at Roundhouse on 51st anniversary of first basketball game

On Feb. 12, 1965 the Marshalltown High School Roundhouse hosted its first basketball game, with the Bobcats taking on Ames.
In honor of the 51st anniversary and as a way to celebrate the renovated Roundhouse, there will be special events on Feb. 12, 2016 as part of the girls and boys basketball games that night against Ames.
