Leader Publications would like to extend its congratulations to winners of the Four Flags Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards, which were presented at its dinner ceremony Thursday night in Niles.
We would like to applaud the winners: Business of the Year, East Main Gardens Florist and Greenhouse; Lifetime Achievement, French Paper Co.; Industry of the Year, Delta Machining Inc.; Service Club of the Year, Kiwanis Club of Niles; Woman of the Year, Minnie Warren, president and owner of Mintech Inc.; Man of the Year, Doug Law, superintendent of Niles Community Schools; Ambassador of the Year, Linda Lenox; Past Director, John Klimek and the late Bob Cowan and Don White.
These local businesses and business supporters work to keep the Niles area thrivent and improving. Many of the winners are longtime and even lifelong residents who serve as cheerleaders for the community and champions for local commerce.
Although only one winner can be named per category each year, there are many more businesses and people who employ our residents and offer their services to the community. Congratulations to those who were nominated and also past winners who continue to contribute positively to Niles.
