Lucas County Special Olympics

Donation appreciated from AJGA


Lucas County Special Olympics picked up a sizeable and very much appreciated donation from the American Junior Golf Association. The funds were raised in a recent tournament sponsored by Dana. Pictured from the left are Sherrie Hathaway, Kelley Watson, Dana Senior Communications Director Jeff Cole, athlete Craig Welch, and Tournament Committee Chair Rod Felcik.


Special Olympics athletes show their art talents!

Congratulations to Cassandra Wilson whose artwork was chosen to represent Lucas County. Her art work has been sent to the Special Olympics Ohio office where her art work will be judged and shown at an art exhibit.  Click here all the  contest entries.

Special Olympics staff retiring

Liz Lubinski, Community Inclusion Trainer, is retiring from the Board of DD after 31 years of service. Liz has been a part of Special Olympics for the past 4 years and she loves working with the athletes. Liz has been a huge asset to our department and she will be truly missed. We know Liz will be back from time to time to volunteer at events so we will still get to see her.  Congratulations Liz and enjoy retirement!!
