Honoring Mothers And Loved Ones This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, anyone who has studied West Virginia history has likely heard that the first Mother’s Day was celebrated in the town of Grafton. But not everyone knows the backstory of how it came to be. Also, in this show, we visit Mullens to learn about a dogwood planting ceremony that honors loved ones who have passed away.
