Bill is one of my many lifestyle mentors. Bill has been my friend for over 14 years. He never meets a stranger, quick with an opinion, and always holds court wherever he goes. Our friendship grew because he joined my Kiwanis Club, which has really evolved into Bill’s club. Bill is an integral part of my Hotter N’ Hell gang and one of the main reasons I go every year.
On June 29, 2011 the Kiwanis Club of Arlington made Bill a Hixson Fellow by donating $1,000 in his name to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund in his name. This was for all his service to the club as treasure and one of the wittiest newsletter editor in the world. He has always championed Troop 5 to insure it continues to get sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Arlington. I was quite flattered when he recognized me as family and at his acceptance speech.
I make guest appearances to the club because of my job, but was glad I made it that day to Bill’s Kiwanis Club.
