From now until the end of March, the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross is accepting nomination forms for the annual Hero of the Year Award.
The award recognizes a person who has made a significant, positive impact on the community.
Past winners include Linda Allen, Vickie Blevins, Mahendran Naidu, Ginny Ramsey, Dr. Andy Moore and Dr. David Stevens.
On Presidents' Day, Raising Cane's restaurants in Lexington, along with the Red Cross, teamed-up to honor community heroes.
As part of its Hero Discount, Raising Cane's offered 10-percent off to all police, EMT, fire and military personnel as well as military spouses with valid ID.
The discount is always available, but the restaurant chain made a special effort to get the word out on Presidents' Day.
