The Winchester Chamber of Commerce announced that the 2020 Citizens of the Year will be Winchester’s essential workers.
This award honors individuals of local prominence whom the chamber and the community recognize as contributors to the betterment of life in Winchester. There are no specific criteria for the award itself. The stature of the individuals who have been honored in the past serves as the true benchmark for selection.
The chamber’s Citizen of the Year award will be the 41st award given to a recipient(s) chosen for making a significant contribution toward the improvement of the business community or the overall quality of life in Winchester. The essential workers of Winchester quite obviously uphold the qualities of this award.
The chamber plans to honor these amazing men and women with a car parade through town to honor their incredible work. The parade will take place at 1 p.m. Nov. 4 and will begin in the St. Eulalia’s parking lot, 50 Ridge St., Winchester. The parade will last about an hour and will drive by spots through town honoring our essential workers from the Fire and Police departments, Town Hall, Department of Public Works, Stop and Shop, Fells Hardware, Aberjona Nursing and Rehab, Winchester Nursing and Rehab, and Winchester Hospital.
