070913 Ghent memorial.jpg

A permanent memorial is being planned at the site of a propane gas leak and explosion that occurred in 2007 at a Little General Store in Ghent. The blast killed four people instantly, and another died later of his wounds. In mind is a stone monument 10 feet high with a base measuring 21 by 54 feet, featuring a cap base and a raised area with a flagstone. A special fund has been created to accept donations for the memorial.
