Four bands in Alta firemen fundraiser

It will be a rockin' night at the Alta Community Center Saturday, Sept. 29 as the Alta Firefighters host the "Rock the Roof Road Show", held in conjunction with the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door. For $10, the crowd will have the chance to hear four of the area's best rock and roll bands - from young up-and-coming performers to hall of famers.

Food will be available at an additional cost.

This special event is a fundraiser for the Alta Fire Department; all proceeds will be used to help fund a new fire house.
