Minnie “Marie” Kershner was a legend among Salvation Army bell ringers. She started ringing the bell in downtown Hagerstown near McCrory's, and kept ringing the bell for 50 years. Marie later was moved to the entrance of Kmart at Valley Plaza, where she became a fixture. “Many people, when they think of bell ringers in Washington County, they think of Marie. The Kmart employees just loved her,” said Salvation Army Sgt. Maj. Larry Miller of Hagerstown. Miller said for about 15 years, he would pick Marie up at the Alexander House, where she was living, so she could attend Sunday school at The Salvation Army.
