One response to “Happy Birthday, Bill Meyer!

  1. Bill is an amazing man. He volunteers whenever and wherever he can. Every year he comes to the Creative Arts Festival, put on by the Westport Young Woman’s League, and serves as a greeter for all the shoppers that come through the doors. He always has a smile on his face and is willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs it. Happy 80th Birthday Bill!
