Dennis puts a local face on stories about heroes

 


Most of us don’t think much beyond an initial “Oh, wow!” reaction when we hear about the rescue of someone from a harrowing situation, but a local man has played that part for most of his life.

Archie Dennis was chosen as our volunteer of the year because he’s the kind of guy who shows up anywhere he might be needed in places a lot of people would not want to go.

His story and photo on the front page will let us all think of the human beings behind those news stories, whether they’re about rescuing someone off a cliff or recovering a drowning victim.

Dennis has been a go-to diver in the region for decades and serves on the Grand Coulee Volunteer Fire Department.

We’re thankful he’s dedicated to helping people in our region and proud to be able to tell his story.
