Bill Dorman Awarded AFC's Service Award

Bill and his wife Vi live on Frisbee Road in Cassadaga, New York. They have a son Christopher who is also a NYFOA AFC member, two daughters Tammy and Duwena and five grandchildren. Bill is a semi-retired, self employed quality systems auditor and a retired Town Justice. Bill’s woodland is about three miles from their home on Shumla Road, Cassadaga where they have fifty-three acres on what is the 5th generation farm where he grew up. His son Chris and Chris’ wife Mary and their two children live on the farm. In the middle of his woods he has a nice cabin built by Bill and his father. It has been used by all generations as a family camp and hunting cabin.

Bill joined NYFOA in February of 2010 and shortly after that was elected Vice Chairman of the chapter. Two years later >he was elected chapter chairman. Currently Bill serves as chapter secretary. Bill has been managing his woods with advice and encouragement from MFOs and DEC and private foresters. He hosted a very successful, informative and interesting “Restore New York Woodlands” event. Bill, his son, granddaughter, and grandson enjoy deer and turkey hunting on their property. He is an enthusiastic volunteer at our county fair display.

Bill is an active supporter of The Stockton Panthers 4- H club of which his grandchildren Kendra and Jared are active participants and their parents, Chris and Mary, are leaders. Bill has also supported the sheep, poultry, hog and goat program that the family had been involved in. He enjoys using antique equipment to produce hay for the animals and teaching the next generation about land and timber management.

Bill, being an eager worker and ready volunteer, is an easy choice for this award.
