Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Some of the heroes of the American Red Cross were honored today for their work in disaster zones here at home and across the country.

I was pleased to emcee the annual meeting of the Red River Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross at the Ramada Plaza and Suites.

A crowd of about 300 turned out to hear stories from people who were helped during the flood of 1997, and stories from volunteers who've deployed to disaster zones nationwide, including 9-11 in New York City and Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey.
