When we set out to meet Bill we didn't realize it was his 60th Birthday!
How many people do you know who go to 5am spin class BEFORE commuting by bike across the Narrows Bridge to work? Longtime Gig Harbor resident Bill isn't your average 60 year old, join us for this episode of #meettheneighbors253 and find out how Bill does it!
“My commitment and discipline to bike to work and to keep that going all these years, part of it comes from my wife,” says Bill. “She's really always encouraged me to do that, and if there are days when I don't feel like doing it, just her questioning me, you know, ‘Hey, Bill, are you gonna bike today,’ puts it out there.”
When it comes to aging well, Bill says that the big secret is the courage to maintain an attitude of joy and gratitude. “It takes a lot of courage to live life and to suffer and, in the midst of suffering, still be joyful.”

What happens when you meet your neighbors? How can we increase the feeling of connection between members of our community and their neighbors? Over the past few months we here at Windermere Professional Partners have set out to answer those questions. Based on recommendations from our REALTORS® we set out with a camera crew to speak to our neighbors from the heart about what it means to be a neighbor, to live life fully, and to connect with our community.
