PORTLAND, ME- The Maine Red Claws, presented by Quirk Chevrolet, today announced that they are seeking nominations for the Home Court Heroes Award. The announcement was made by Red Claws President and General Manager Jon Jennings.
The TD Bank Home Court Heroes Program recognizes Maine citizens who have displayed exemplary humanitarian spirit that has in turn positively affected their community. Nomination forms are available on the Red Claws website at www.maineredclaws.com. One winner will be recognized during each Red Claws home game this season and will be presented with an engraved parquet plaque.
"From the Coast Guard in Acadia National Park who rescued sightseers who were swept off the rocks, to NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy from York, to the 13-year-old Berwick boy who saved himself and his mother from their burning house, to the 10-year-old in Turner who used the skills he learned in Boy Scouts to save his younger brother from choking last week, Maine is filled with everyday heroes," said Jennings. "The TD Bank Home Court Heroes is TD Bank and the Red Claws' way of recognizing these extraordinary individuals."
The Home Court Heroes program will be sponsored by TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank, which has long been a strong presence in Maine. One of the 15 largest commercial banks in the United States, TD Bank has more than 1,000 locations from Maine to Florida and is headquartered in Portland, Maine and Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

Wold, President, Maine, TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank.
