She makes for a heck of a catered affair, and she's the Wilton Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year.

Nancy Dolnier, well known in town as the longtime manager of the Village Market, accepted the honors of being named Business Person of the Year Sept. 21 in an evening event at the Rolling Hills Country Club.

"It's a lovely honor. I don't know why they chose me, but it is a lovely honor," said Dolnier, who has managed the Village Market 25 years.

She began her career there even before then, starting as a cashier.

"I worked my way up," she said of her years at the popular food stop.

The Chamber event drew dozens of business people from Wilton for finger foods and cocktails in a cozy banquet room while a classical guitarist played pop standards.
