Former selectman Thomas Howley, who recently ended his nine-year run on the board, will be honored this month as Winchester’s 2013 Outstanding Citizen of the Year. Howley, who decided not to run for reelection this year, was replaced on the Board of Selectmen by Lance Grenzeback, the former Planning Board chairman. However, he still remains committed to municipal service and is currently a Town Meeting member. Prior to becoming a selectman, Howley served on the Planning Board for five years. He has also served on various volunteer committees. Howley, co-owner of the Howley Bread Group, a Panera Bread franchisee, is the 34th recipient of the Outstanding Citizen of the Year award, an honor bestowed annually by the Winchester Chamber of Commerce. This award honors individuals of local prominence recognized by the chamber and the community as contributing to the betterment of life in Winchester. The 2012 recipient was Helen Babcock, the former chairman of the Council on Aging. Howley will be honored during a dinner May 15 at the Burlington Marriott. Howley’s friends and associates, members of the chamber, and the community are invited to attend. Reservations may be made by contacting the chamber at or 781-729-8870. Seating is limited. Tickets are $60 per person.
