Rockton business aims to honor local heroes


A Rockton business wants to pay tribute to a local hero, but needs the community's help.

The Sanctuary Spa of Rockton will host the Dedicated to Serve event next month in honor of local residents who help, protect, or inspire others. The spa is currently taking nominations of heroes to honor. A chosen hero and the person who nominated them will get a spa package as a way to thank them for all they've done for others and the community.

"You have military and the police and firemen and nurses, doctors, teachers that do all these great things and they never get enough, you know, one appreciation week a year for them just isn't enough," owner Erica Smith said.

Erica said she's received a few entries so far, but is hoping for more before picking a winner. The nomination deadline is May 1 and they can be submitted at the spa's Facebook page.
