Correction: Marshall Recreation Center ‘shutdown week’ in effect through May 18


Monday, May 12, marked the beginning of the sixth annual “shutdown week” for the Marshall Recreation Center. The facility will re-open Monday, May 19.

“Shutdown week” means the entire Recreation Center staff is cleaning and renovating the facility. Staff members will be working as a team to complete the duties assigned to them by the assistant director of facilities and operations, Keith Hernstrom. Some duties include deep cleaning of equipment and the climbing wall, pool maintenance and repair, locker room cleaning and maintenance, and gym floor recoating.

Each year specific areas get special attention, but no part of the facility goes untouched. This year the focus will be on pool- and gym-floor maintenance.

The Rec would like to thank all members and guests for their patience and understanding during this short time. They look forward to opening their doors May 19.
