Dickson honored as 2014 Hooksett Citizen of the Year
HOOKSETT — For more than 25 years, David Dickson has been Mr. Do-It-All in Hooksett.
Now he’s the 2014 Hooksett Citizen of the Year.
Dickson joins a long line of standout residents to receive the honor, dating back to 1959.
According to a press release from Hooksett Town Council Chairman James Sullivan, who also serves as Hooksett Lions Club president, the Citizen of the Year accolade is awarded in recognition of a dedicated and committed citizen who has made “Hooksett a better place in which to live.”
According to Sullivan, Dickson’s done that and more.
In addition to serving on Hooksett’s Town Council, Dickson has served as long-time president of the Hooksett Youth Athletic Association (HYAA), president of the HYAA Little League and HYAA treasurer. He’s also been a member of the New Hampshire Football Officials Association and the New Hampshire Wrestling Officials Association.
“Mr. Dickson has lived in Hooksett for over 25 years and has been a town fixture, especially at Donati Field as umpire, youth supporter and coach and has also served on the Town Budget Committee,” Sullivan said in the release. “He is a member and past president of Hooksett Kiwanis and currently is the current New England Kiwanis Lt. Governor in Division Seven.”
Dickson will be formally recognized as the 55th Hooksett Citizen of the Year at an award ceremony on Saturday, May 10.
