Whether you know him as Mr. Bill, Mr. Bill the Movie Man, Bill Brittain or any other name, you have no doubt seen Bill Brittain all over this town, and chances are you have seen him selflessly giving his time and talents to help.
The following is an excerpt of the nomination we received for Bill:
Mr. Brittain has on numerous occasions done some work for the city. He goes above and beyond what is expected. I catch him out repairing lights, antique lamps, cleaning around the depot and working on things that “just needed to be fixed” without being asked.
To that I would like to add that Bill also volunteers with the Lake Country Playhouse, the Warehouse of Terror, the Mineola Historical Museum and many other things in this town. If the measure of a man is what he eagerly does for others, Bill Brittain measures high on that scale. He is truly one of our most valuable citizens and well deserving of this award.
