2007 Honoree


John Mazzochi has been selected as the 2007 recipient of the annual Harwinton Outstanding Citizen Award, which will be presented for the 33rd time at a banquet on Friday, April 27, at the Torrington Elks Club.

Mr. Mazzochi is a longtime resident of Harwinton and has donated many years of his time to town organizations. A communicant of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, his work as a member of the Curechief Foundation (which sews and distributes kerchiefs for cancer patients) and the Social Concerns Committee, were among the reasons for his being awarded the Catholic Service Award by the Archbishop of Hartford.

He is a past director of the Harwinton Agricultural Society and is a vital part of the success of the Harwinton Fair weekend, working countless hours year round to help assure every detail is set for the annual event. John is currently a member of the Harwinton Volunteer Fire Department and serves as a member of the Fire Police.

A longtime supporter of the Harwinton Youth Sports Association, John gives his heart and his time to serve the organization and can often be found at sporting events as an enthusiastic supporter.

He is also an official “uncle” to the Little League Baseball Organization, Eastern Region, spending countless hours assisting Little League players at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Field in Bristol.

I was deeply gratified to hear that I was the recipient of the Outstanding Citizen Award.

To be in such great company of those who have been selected before me is a great honor.”
