The flag flying over the bandstand during August is in honor of Marvin Rolffs.
Marvin entered the Army in 1962. After basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, he had six months of training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, for Arty Track vehicle maintenance. He was awarded the Sharp Shooter badge for Rifle.

He went on to serve in the Army Reserves in Iowa until his discharge in 1968.

Marvin’s first civilian job was with Louie Anders, and then he and Tom Kelderman opened a garage in 1965. He later opened his own garage, Rolffs Auto Service, operating it for 40 years, retiring in 2012.
