The Central and Mid Coast Maine Chapter of the American Red Cross will honor community members who go above and beyond in service to others at its 16th annual Real Heroes Award Breakfast Tuesday, March 5, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Ramada Inn, 490 Pleasant St., Lewiston.

Among other award recipients, Andrew Banow of Rockport will be presented with a Red Cross Lifesaving Award. Banow was at the Rockland Fish Pier when he noticed someone in the water. A fast-moving boat had created a wave that knocked lobsterman Gary Kenney into the water, where his wet clothes and boots pulled him down and he was unable to get into his skiff. Banow got into the skiff of the fishing vessel he was working on and went out to Kenney and pulled him aboard.
