Dennis Young would be the first to tell you he’s shy by nature. But shyness doesn’t stop the mild-mannered accountant from turning into a superhero when it comes to community involvement.
Since the early 1970s, when he first arrived in Los Altos, Young has been a ubiquitous volunteer. He’s been active in everything from the Rotary Club of Los Altos to the Community Health Awareness Council. He’s used his accounting expertise to crunch the numbers for local nonprofit organizations. He’s served as master of ceremonies for the annual awards luncheon honoring other community volunteers. And he’s even played Santa Claus at the Festival of Lights Parade.
