Bill Adams retired from state government in 1994 at age 72. Now, at age 86 Bill is in his tenth year as Speaker for the Alabama Silver-Haired Legislature (a model of the State Legislature) made up of citizen volunteers aged 60 and older. Bill also serves on the Advisory of the Top of Alabama Regional Council of Governments. Bill is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Alabama Retired State Employees Association. In his spare time, he grows a garden, maintains an orchard, a fish pond and four acres of grass around their home. Then, Bill plays golf with his sons, a son-in-law and a few senior friends. Yes, Bill get's beat...Ocassionally. Is that all? No, Bill smokes bar-b-que-ribs, grills steaks and cooks a pot of stew for his children, grandchildren and friends once in a while.
