Bill Plante is being remembered, rightly so, as a national news journalist and White House correspondent of national renown. Georgetown Village is here to tell you he was also a pillar of our local community. Bill championed the efforts of our Village to promote independent living by seniors and their ongoing engagement with one another and the community. He served as a member of the Georgetown Village Board and was the chairman of our Communications Committee.
Whether interviewing Madeleine Albright or Jose Andres for us or rewriting our recruitment brochure, no task was too great or too small for him to undertake on behalf of the Village. He understood our mission and put his incredibly valuable shoulder to the wheel on the behalf of our efforts and the broader community. With his wonderful wife Robin, he was a founding member of our Village, seeding our initial organizing efforts. Our local community is the poorer for his leaving it. We wish his family our deepest condolences, but recognize a life well and meaningfully lived.
