Daily Herald - NAPERVILLE, IL — June 24, 2015 — 

"...With family members and neighbors in the audience, Arthur Hawksley of Naperville grabbed a Ping-Pong paddle and stepped to the table to be one of the first competitors in Naperville Park District's inaugural Senior Games... It was the perfect opportunity for the Silverado Naperville Memory Care Community to plan an outing, and five Silverado residents showed up as a team. Dressed in a uniform of matching navy polos, three men and two women from the memory care center planned to compete in Ping-Pong on Wednesday.

'Silverado is here to show we can do anything,' said Robyn Velazquez, Director of Resident Engagement. 'Nothing can stop us.'

In his first-round match, however, Hawksley's Ping-Pong progress was stopped by Gilbert Singler, who went on to finish in third place.

Hawksley said he didn't think the match went too well, but he only practices once a month. He pointed at fellow Silverado resident Calvin Chopp as an example of a more accomplished player; Chopp plays every day, Hawksley said, and he finished in fourth place."
