We are Ping Pong Parkinson.
To help anyone with Parkinson's Disease
through ping pong (primarily) – and to have fun while doing it.
Just bring yourself on any Wednesday at 7:30 pm and you will be welcome. Let the club's front desk know that you are here for Parkinson's Ping Pong and they will point you to us. The club entrance fee is $10 (if this is problematic for you, please let Art or Nenad know and we will make arrangements).

Recently my TV, internet and telephone service, all provided by one supplier via coaxial cable, went out. I called the company in Norwalk countless times, only to be greeted by a robot who first informed that our ‘conversation’ would be recorded and then kept asking...read more
