During the dog day of summer one may find any number of people participating in a variety of different activities around out community. From our friendly neighbors that are mowing and watering their lawns, to the sounds of people splashing and having a good time at the aquatic center. During the summer softball games can be viewed, and Oktemberfest activities are great for the whole family. Marshall County has miles of wonderful trail, and during the summer months the sounds of roaring engines can be heard from the fair grounds. A tranquil place within the heart of Iowa to live.
