Today, I had the honor to recognize Weymouth resident, Bill Begley, for his 100th birthday.
Bill is an important figure in Weymouth’s history. He served in the Navy during WWII and has been involved in town supporting the community for many years. In 1972, the co-founded the North Weymouth Civic Association with John Peruzzi. Bill served as a Town Meeting Member from 1972 – 1999 and as a Weymouth Planning Board Member from 1978 – 1991. In 1986, Bill was instrumental in helping the Weymouth Council on Aging secure the current Senior Center location at 182 Green Street. For over 30 years, Bill served as the Chair for the Friends of the Council on Aging and also the Chair of the Executive Board of Weymouth Elder Services.
I was joined by Representative James Murphy, Mayor Bob Hedlund Councilor Mike Molisse, John Peruzzi and Bill’s family to celebrate his big day. Along with recognition from the Massachusetts Senate, House of Representatives, Governor Healey and the Weymouth Town Council, Bill was presented with a key to the city and today was proclaimed Bill Begley Day by Mayor Hedlund.
Happy Birthday Bill. Your community wishes you well!
