Bill began dancing in 1988 at the Casa Loma Ballroom in St Louis MO. Soon after, he became a member of the West County Swing Dance Club, joined its board, set up a membership drive, improved the club’s newsletter, and set up systems that continue to provide the club financial strength and stability. Bill has served as its President and Treasurer at various intervals. He is responsible for the increase in the club’s membership from 27 members to over 900 members at the time of his nomination to the ABA Hall of Fame. He has served as the Treasurer for Rollin’ on the River, WCSDC’s annual event, and for the Midwest Swing Dance Federation. He has represented his club as an ABA Director for several years. Bill’s unending service has been constant and faithful.
