The American Red Cross’ Buffalo Valley Chapter is busy continuing its efforts for March’s American Red Cross Month.
March 29 marks the chapter’s sixth annual Heroes Recognition Dinner to celebrate and honor local volunteers’ work.

The former hairdresser learned the grub-getting ropes as a rookie Red Cross volunteer during the 2006 Red River flood in Fargo-Moorhead.
