American Legion, Cambridge, MD
Join us in celebrating these citizens and their acts of service in Dorchester County!
Honoring our Hometown Heroes was started by the Dorchester Banner in 2012 and has become a true testament to the local residents that on a daily basis go above and beyond to serve others unselfishly.
Nominations for the 2020 Awards are NOW OPEN!
Help the Dorchester Banner recognize Dorchester County's heroes with your nomination!
Too often in our desire to report the news of the day, we overlook the small triumphs. There are many people trying to make a difference who rarely receive the recognition they deserve. "Hometown Heroes" is our way of recognizing those individuals. We're searching for local residents who are not looking for attention, but deserve it. People who through their ideas, effort and dedication are making a difference in the lives of other people.
