We could use more people like Lewis

Our community is blessed with many dedicated, hard-working people who give of their time and talents to make this a better place to live and work.
In yesterday’s edition of the Ennis Daily News, we celebrated one such individual who is well known to many Ennisites. Bill Lewis is a true asset to this community and his work on our behalf has benefited everyone who lives here.
After serving his country in World War II, Lewis has since dedicated himself to serving his fellow man in many selfless ways. He has lived in Ennis since his retirement from the Dallas Power and Light Company and he’s been busy the whole time. While many people would be happy to sit back and take it easy after retiring, Lewis has been actively involved in the pursuit of giving back to this community.
He has worked tirelessly supporting the Chamber of Commerce and also served as both a city commissioner and mayor. He still serves on the Ennis Municipal Airport Board, the Myrtle Cemetery Association Board and as a member of the Ennis Noon Lions Club.
Bill Lewis serves as an example to us all of what it means to be a good citizen. He is generous with his time and abilities and is eager to help others in this community.
Ennis would not be where it is today without Lewis’ leadership and hard work and we challenge our readers to follow his example. At age 81, Bill is still serving his hometown and we are proud to have him. Think of how much we could achieve and how far our community could go if more of us were willing to serve as he does.
