In addition to serving as an elected official, Bill Reynolds was a member of the Public Library’s board of trustees for 43 years (28 of them as president) and a charter member of The Haddonfield Foundation (25 years as president).
A longtime member of the Rotary Club, he was honored with life membership in 2019.
