Due to the tornado that hit Marshalltown on July 19, the Marshall Duplicate Bridge Club has relocated to the Fisher Community Center, 709 South Center Street in Marshalltown. The Marshalltown Club was playing their weekly Wednesday game in the Marshalltown Senior Center whose roof was severely damaged by the tornado. The club’s supplies were not damaged and were removed from a closet in the Senior Citizen’s Center on July 23 by club members Mel Dostal, Bill Hobson, Larry Park and Paul Rober. None of the club members were injured in the storm and only slight property damage was reported.
