HARWINTON OUTSTANDING CITIZEN AWARD
HISTORY

SUPPORTED BY THE
HARWINTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY

______________________


ARTHUR B. POOLE
1905 - 1975

The Harwinton Outstanding Citizen Award was originally established in 1975 as the Arthur B. Poole Award. Mr. Poole helped create the town's Board of Finance in 1949 and the Zoning Commission in 1952. He served on the Board of Finance for more than 25 years as it's Chairman. His dedication and service to the Town of Harwinton and its people will long be remembered, for he made it a better and happier place in which to live.

This annual honor for volunteerism by a Harwinton citizen became the Harwinton Outstanding Citizen Award in 2005 to more specifically reflect the contributions of the honorees.

A rotating committee of Harwinton residents selects the recipient of this award that honors volunteerism and community involvement. To be eligible for the award, a candidate must be a resident of Harwinton for a minimum of 5 years and must be actively engaged in the civic affairs of the town, whether elected, appointed, or voluntary.
