Marvin Stoner Reception

The Waynesboro Heritage Foundation would like to thank everyone including Marvin’s family, friends, museum members, and visitors for attending the Marvin Stoner Reception on Friday, August 23, 2019. Guests watched a WWII oral history interview in which Marvin shares his memories about his time in the U.S. Army. Marvin helped free a concentration camp in Woebblin, Germany and helped to escort German prisoners that surrendered to the U.S. Army. The film is still available in the museum’s audio-visual room for anyone interested in viewing Marvin’s interview.

Guests also enjoyed a temporary mini-exhibit that highlights Marvin’s life and legacy. Many speakers spoke about how Marvin was a transplant to Waynesboro and how grateful they were that Marvin made a home in Waynesboro. He loved the city and Waynesboro’s history. He worked diligently to create a place where artifacts, manuscripts, documents, and oral history would be preserved for future generations.

The mini-exhibit is on display in the Heritage Museum.
