Senator Hassan Recognizes Dianne Paquette of Salem as July “Granite Stater of the Month”

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan today recognized Dianne Paquette of Salem as the Granite Stater of the Month for July for her steadfast commitment to strengthening her community and supporting her fellow Granite Staters in times of need.

As a dedicated member of the Salem community, Dianne helped raise funds to repair two elementary school playgrounds and to restore the historic Salem Depot Train Station. She also formed a group of law enforcement officials, fire fighters, and others she calls the “Village” who share her commitment to helping their community. Led by Dianne, the “Village” hosted multiple fundraisers to support the families impacted by two recent fires in Salem and help them get back on their feet.

Senator Hassan launched the “Granite Stater of the Month” initiative last year to recognize outstanding New Hampshire citizens who go above and beyond to help their neighbors and make their communities stronger.
