The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record: 

Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Dottie Wilson of Hill County for her tremendous impact on the North Central Montana community of Havre.

Dottie, a former baker at Grateful Bread, took a tremendous leap of faith and made the decision to open her own bakery, Infinity Bake Shoppe LLC in April of 2017.

Dottie’s bakery offers a variety of baked goods including cookies, pastries, scones and cinnamon rolls as well as three different varieties of baked donuts, soups and lunch items.

Since Infinity Bake Shoppe opened, it has been a great addition to the Havre community. Dottie did not anticipate her new business would take off so quickly, but folks from all across the Hi-Line are lining up for her baked goods.

Dottie said she was inspired to start her own business in order to provide her daughter Keeley with a more purposeful future. Keeley, who has Williams syndrome, followed in her mother’s entrepreneurial spirit and opened up, Lady Bug Bites LLC, making and selling treats for dogs and cats.

It is my honor to recognize Dottie Wilson for her hard work and talent in opening up Infinity Bake Shoppe LLC. She is a fine example of the type of entrepreneurship coming from Montana main street businesses.
