Red Cross seeks Real Hero nominees
MAINE — Those who know of heroes in their community can nominate them for the American Red Cross of Maine’s 2019 Real Heroes awards.
The Red Cross recognizes everyday people who go above and beyond in service to others by presenting awards each year to those who perform extraordinary acts. They may be teachers, military personnel, first responders or other citizens. What they have in common are acts of heroism, courage, kindness or unselfish character in service to others.

Award categories include Good Samaritan, Lifesaver, Service to the Armed Forces, Blood Services and Community Service.
The Real Heroes will be honored at events in Lewiston, Brewer, Portland and Aroostook County.
