The Beaver Meadow Neighborhood Thanks Arthur Owen
The neighbors on Chapel Hill Road and Beaver Meadow Road wanted to put a party together to thank Arthur Owen for all he has done for them over the years. They contacted his wife, Carol and received permission to hold a surprise party for him at the Beaver Meadow School House on Chapel Hill Road
Arthur's neighbors gathered at the school to thank him.
Carol and Arthur
The Beaver Meadow community filled the old school.
There were many people involved in making this party, held on August 20th, the huge success that it was. (Congratulations to all who assisted in this endeavor)
Chad Finer was the photographer for the event and shared his images for this article.
Several residents spoke about Arthur and the many contributions that he has made. Ulrike Von Moltke and Ria Blaas read their letters to Arthur that are reprinted below. You will find that they really hit home with the audience and pretty much told the story of the many things that Arthur has done to help his neighbors and the community.
