CHARLESTON, WV -

Public service has always been important to U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.

He first came to the Mountain State as a VISTA volunteer in 1964 at 27 years old.

As a way to honor public service that takes place throughout West Virginia, Rockefeller plans to gather a group of people from throughout the state at 11:30 a.m. June 22 at Bible Center Church in Charleston.

The event will feature a discussion about pathways to community service available in West Virginia along with celebrating the people who have committed their time to make West Virginia a better place.

Earlier this month, Rockefeller asked for West Virginians to share their "stories of service" with his office through Aug. 20.

"Here in West Virginia, public service is a way of life," he said in a news release. "People dedicate their lives, careers and countless volunteer hours to serving one another.

"I like to think public service is in our DNA. It is who we are."
