The Pine City Area Chamber of Commerce would like to extend our congratulations to Robert Thompson the 2009 Outstanding Citizen of the Year. Thompson joins a growing list of deserving citizens who have worked so diligently to make Pine City what it is today. He is the owner of MINPACK and 4Staffing, and is an active member in the Pine City Lions and the Pine Center for the Arts, among other organizations.
The Chamber would also like to extend a thank you to all of the people who sent in their nomination letters in support of Robert as well as a number of other candidates. We truly appreciate you taking the time to submit those letters and help our community to recognize those that serve the Pine City community in so many ways. A special thank you to this year’s selection committee. The group includes past recipients of the award, City of Pine City staff and various Chamber Member businesses. An additional thank you to Jan Carl and Todd Cummings for organizing the selection committee and Citizen of the Year event.
A reception for the 2009 Citizen of the Year will be held in the coming weeks. More information will be released by the Chamber office as it becomes available.
