Meet Past Active: Jim Vogt

Past President of Healdsburg #205, California

In 2011, Dan Chapin, who was the current president of Healdsburg #205 shared about sitting down with gentleman turning 100. They had something in common to talk about – Active 20-30.

Dan told us, “I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to sit down with him for an interview that the local online news folks organized. It was one of the most amazing life experiences and for a guy who re-chartered an old club I never imagined this kind of thing would happen.”

Among the stories Jim Vogt passed along, he also gave Dan his 1947 Past Active card.
You can read the published article from The Healdsburg Patch and watch a few videos of Dan and Jim’s day together, their common interests and how the club has changed with time.

Sadly, Jim passed away the following year on May 4, 2012. (see obituary)

I invite you all to connect with past actives – both recent and not-so-recent times. Share with us stories you’ve heard and mementos you’ve seen that help us understand our history together.

Just like the “legacy stories” I share regarding 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generational Active members, I would like to start a series on the Past Actives and their stories. Please contact me (I would love to recognize and feature your history) – mchlspil@gmail.com
