About the Award
The award was created to recognize Westbrook Republicans who, with honor and dignity, have made a positive contribution to their community.
The award is named for John A. Holbrook who served with distinction as First Selectman of Westbrook, was elected to the House of Representatives and the State Senate.
During World War II, Mr. Holbrook served as a Major in the Army and was appointed as the Military Governor of Stuttgart Germany.
The event is held each spring at beautiful Water’s Edge Resort & Spa in Westbrook. We are proud to recognize two outstanding Westbrook residents and one Corporate Citizen in his name each year.
