Newtown Table Tennis Club Members:
I am very sorry to report that Arthur Vogel “Art” passed away last Wednesday, December 3. Funeral Arrangements are private, though his daughter, Dawn, is perhaps looking toward a “life celebration” event after the New Year. I will keep you posted as to any information regarding the life celebration.
Art was an integral part of the Newtown Table Tennis Club. Not only was he a founding member, he remained active from 1978 through the spring of 2014. He rarely, and I mean very rarely, missed a night of table tennis. He was awarded our “Most Valuable Member” award the last two years. While he be sorely missed, he will also be remembered by me and by many as one of the nicest gentleman you could ever meet who really was devoted to table tennis and specifically the Newtown Table Tennis Club.
I would like to send a donation to Disabled American Veterans from our Club in Art’s name. Many of you know that Art was a Navy veteran. If you would like to send a contribution, please bring a check to the club payable to “Disabled American Veterans” and I will send the checks along with one from the Club. I would like to do this by December 19, 2014 so please keep that in mind if you wish to contribute.
Bill Cowan, Jr.
Newtown Table Tennis Club, President
