The Village Council has proclaimed that August 18, 2016 be known as Annie Wallace Day in the Village of Marvin in honor of long-time area resident Mrs. Annie Wallace upon the occasion of her 100th Birthday.  

Mrs. Wallace was born in Lancaster County, SC on August 18, 1916 and has been a resident of the Marvin area for most of her life.  She has seen this area grow from a very small farming community to the Village that we all know today.  She married Mayo Wallace and had five children with him, plus a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

Mrs. Wallace will celebrate her birthday with family and friends on August 20.  We wish her all the very best on her special day.
