MARSHFIELD – On July 19, several members of the Kesler visited the Marshfield Center for History to observe progress of the museum in the 2nd Street Community Center and make donations in memory of Kesler family members who served.
The museum volunteers are doing an exceptional job documenting and telling the vital stories of the Marshfield community,” said Harriett Kesler. “As our home town, Marshfield played an important role in our lives and will continue to do so, especially through the museum.
“We were pleased to donate several items that will help to tell the stories of Marshfield residents and the impact major events had on the community,” Harriett added. “Our donations included Vernon Kesler’s portrait (first Marshfield resident killed in the Korean War), Vernon’s uniform, (a) picture of Harold and Herbert Kesler who served during World War II, and uniforms from Harold and Herbert.
“The dedication and expertise of volunteers will keep historical events important to our community available for present and future generations.”
