CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Sen. Jay Rockefeller is asking West Virginians to share their stories of service and giving as part of the state's 150th anniversary.
The Democrat says he plans to compile the submissions for future generations to highlight residents' legacy of service to their communities and each other.
He recalled the time when flooding drenched southern West Virginia and shelters were opened for the displaced. But he said they were not needed, because neighbor took in neighbor.
Rockefeller is asking state residents to submit their stories through social media sites. The deadline is Aug. 20.
