Ann P. Lally was the guest of honor Monday at a special St. Patrick's Day luncheon held at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem.
"She's known for her infectious smile and her willingness to always lend a hand," Dolloff said. "Ann truly exhibits the concern, involvement and leadership in Salem that Chief Ganley exemplified."
The crowd rose in a standing ovation as Hassan took to the podium, where the governor joked around with audience members before offering Lally her well wishes.
Motioning across the room to Morse, Hassan noted that "it was a tough week for both of us," referring to the recent House rejection of the casino bill.
"That's right, we're moving the state Legislature there," she quipped.
"This club brightens lives," Hassan said. "What young people need more than anything is to have some grown-ups in their corner. Ann's work as the bank's president speaks for itself, but she's done so much more."
"Like Ann, these are the folks who are working under the radar and are usually behind the scenes," Hassan said.
