Bill Mount Has Left The Building...

and is now officially retired and ready to surf daily at C Street!

Dateline: Saturday evening, March 26, 2016...

A crowd of friends, family and well wishers gathered earlier this evening at Will Rogers Lifeguard HQ to honor Bill Mount for all his years of service as an ocean lifeguard.

There he is, the man of the hour... working his last shift...

Meanwhile out front, one of our Baywatch rescue boat crews showed up to give Bill a proper celebratory send off!...

And another highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Bronze Savage to Bill by Captain Tito Bourget on behalf of LACOLA honoring Bill for his many years of service as an LACo OL and OLS.

Congratulations to Bill !  Thank you for your example, inspiration, service and friendship.


Until next time.....

Hi Will,

Bill's favorite assignment is At Will Rogers North.   His truck is LG 272. 
So here a couple of shots of the truck and the event.

  What a long long fun career.
