The First Capital District Chapter of the American Red Cross will celebrate local heroes with a special banquet in mid March.
Heroes can range from those who have selflessly performed heroic deeds or who have provided outstanding service in the community.
Executive Director Mary McCord says there are ten categories recognized each year and is a major fundraiser for the local Red Cross Chapter.
This year’s banquet will be held at the St. Peter’s Catholic Church Parish Hall in Chillicothe on Friday March 15th. Doors will open at 5:30pm and dinner begins at 6pm. McCord says the keynote speaker will be an actress who portrays Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross.
Complete details are available at www.rossredcross.org, including nomination forms for the heroes. Deadline for nominations is March 4th.
