Bill George was an electrician living in Wardsville who embraced Twin Valley School, even though our bill payments to him and all others were always slow! As I played a part in getting tradesmen to work at our community, I spent time with Bill. Anyone who knew him realized that Bill had lots to say (a real story teller!). A kind and gentle man he was indeed. But did you know that he had a number of experiences with extraterrestials? Yes indeed! I heard all about it one Sunday evening in 1974 when I had called Bill to see if he could drive me to the hospital in Chatham after a small truck accident. (Our vehicles were always either broken down or nearly broken in the early days). On the way there he regaled me with his sightings of saucers and bright lights in the sky that he had experienced. I was surprised, as I thought that we TVS folk were supposed to be authors of unusual ideas!!! It was a pleasure to be with him.
His warmth and acceptance of our rough and ready group was instrumental to our wider acceptance in the local community. I was very honoured to be called by his wife Mossie, to be a pall bearer for him in 1975.
