Scott Oil Press Agent and FOB Ellen sends in this-
I attended yesterday’s event honoring the 2011 Red Cross Community Heroes sponsored by the Red Cross of Northeast Mass. Out of the whole region 4 of the award were given to Cape Ann folks.
- Community Hero: Bill Scott
- Community Hero: Sefatia Romeo Theken
- Community Hero: Karen Benier, Jeff Jones, and Jorge Lemerise who helped save a distressed boater in Essex last August
- Education Hero: Shawn Maquire (Principal Rockport Elementary) and parent Tina Lamond
The Red Cross receives a lot of nominations and only 9 total awards were given out including a Youth Award and and Enduring Hero award. So Cape Ann was well represented. May your weekend rock, Elle
