Bill Thomas wins Medal

Word has just arrived from the Republican Congressional Committee that Beaver Island's Bill Thomas has won the Business Advisory Council's Gold Medal Award for Michigan and will serve on the Council, which is dedicated to making sure that small business has a voice in Washington. "I'm deeply honored to be chosen," Bill said. "Frankly, I didn't realize I was under consideration until I saw in the Wall Street Journal that I was selected." Winners from each state will gather in Washington for the Republican Entrepreneur's Convention in early October, a premier Washington event. Besides meetings and seminars and photo ops with members of Congress, Bill has been invited to attend a dinner with Vice President Dick Cheney.

Congratulations, Bill!
