GHENT, WV (WOAY) – This afternoon to honor the lives lost in the 2007 explosion, the American Red Cross and members of the community came together to put on an annual blood drive.
This is the 13th anniversary of the explosion. The event started at 1 p.m. at the Ghent Fire Department and went until 6 p.m. A member of the community, Sue Baldwin says this is a great way to honor the four men.
