VALE – Bobbi and Dennis Buttice didn’t expect to win an award, but the tireless effort they put in for their community earned them one anyway.

The Vale Chamber of Commerce recently cited the couple as the 2019 Volunteers of the Year Award for their service to several boards and nonprofits.

“It was quite an honor because we both feel that there are many more people in the community that are probably more deserving than we are,” Bobbi Buttice said as she sat on the couch at Perk Beverage Company in Vale.

Dennis Buttice, her husband, nodded affirmatively. 

Bobbi Buttice came to Vale from Montana in 1964 after her . . .
