Name: Diane Chiaradio Bowdy.

Hometown: Westerly.

Occupation: Program representative, Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics, Groton Operations, chairperson of the Westerly School Committee 

Role on Westerly’s 350th committee: Co-chair for The 350th Unity Bell Ringing Ceremony, and, as school committee chair, I represent Westerly Public Schools on the committee.

Reason you joined the 350 the committee: As a lifelong resident of Westerly, I simply want to volunteer my time, invest in the community I love and help in any way I can. I also feel it’s very important to get our young people involved so they can gain an appreciation for everything we have here in Westerly. We also stand to learn from them as well!

Favorite new thing you’ve learned about Westerly: I continue to learn amazing historical information which makes me even more proud to live here!
