Looking For Everyday Heroes
Placeholder Image


Dear Editor,

The term “hero” tends to be overused these days, but there are truly unsung, everyday heroes among us – those who have, in many cases, put personal considerations aside to help someone else. Each year, the local chapter of the American Red Cross honors those in our community who have shown courage, dedication and character through extraordinary acts of heroism and kindness.

Where do these moving stories of kindness, courage, and hope come from? Well, from people like us, who take the time to nominate someone we know who deserves recognition. Nominations are being collected now; those selected will be honored guests at the Ninth Annual Heroes Breakfast in June. The nomination form may be found online at

Liza Cruz,
