The title of the post is the headline to an article in the Kingston Daily Freeman.  Robert Tonner was awarded the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce Award for Entrepreneur of the Year for 2012.

I had the pleasure last night of attending a the awards banquet at the local country club.  It was a dinner given by the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce for the yearly business recognition awards. Robert received the event’s top award.  He was presented with a beautiful award and signed certificates from various state dignitaries.

I’m proud to say that there were 2 full tables of Tonner supporters there. We enjoyed a great dinner, meeting people from other businesses, and enjoyed great conversation.  Then it was time for the awards presented by the Chamber and the speeches from the honorees.  Here is a list of the other honorees:

I was able to video Robert’s acceptance speech and wanted to share it with you here:

Thanks for reading!

  1. Congratulations! How exciting to finally get to become involved with collecting your dolls Robert and company. I’m waiting for my first to arrive this coming week and I’m so anxious. Anyway, what a wonderful speech you gave. I look forward to one day meeting you.
