Adult Community Center

Two big events are coming up that we would like to personally invite you to. The first event is the Hometown Heroes Walk from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Independence Park sponsored by the Marshall Area YMCA and the Adult Community Center. The event was dreamed up as a way to recognize those individuals who put their lives on the line each day for the safety of the communities they serve. We would like to take this day to recognize our local law enforcement, fire departments, military, EMT and clergy for their time. Take some time to honor our heroes in our community. These individuals on are the front lines when a disaster strikes. It is time to say thank you for your dedication and commitment. The event will kick off with the mayor and city administrator at 5:15 p.m. followed by a mile walk led by the American Legion Color Guard. There will be poster displays of drawings from the YMCA kids camps and a display from the Quilts of Valor. Top Hat Concessions will be on hand to serve up a quick bite to eat!
