Stories of heroism told at Hometown Heroes breakfast


The Western Massachusetts Chapter of the American Red Cross honored local heroes with their annual Hometown Heroes breakfast Thursday morning.

The event, which took place at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel, showcases the heroism of everyday local people, who went above and beyond to help others.

Among this year’s honorees are Comcast employees who helped save a 2 year-old girl who was roaming around the center of Monson clad only in a diaper. Another honoree is a brain cancer survivor from Southwick, who has dedicated his life to raising money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
