A group of volunteers are bringing the Special Olympics to the Danville area. Lonnie Jones, 34, is developmentally disabled and has lived in Danville for about a decade. He has fond memories of participating in the Special Olympics as a teenager in Ohio. Jones asked his local case workers about bringing the event to Danville. With the help of Tina Scott and Mary Carol Porter from A1 Case Management, and Judy Bayless from A Brighter Choice, Jones’ dream will come true this year.
