Thornton Township hosted a fishing derby in Lansing for our special services program, which helps people with physical and mental disabilities.
“We could not have done it without the help of the Thornton Township staff. Everyone truly upheld the township motto of People Working With People,” said Beverly Tomczak, special services coordinator.
The Thornton Township Special Service Program was to provide activities and outings for the Developmentally Disabled within the Township and surrounding areas. Over the years it has expanded to the building of wheelchair ramps and home modifications. We are here to assist people with disabilities, their families and agencies with the resources and information that are available to us.
Special Services also provides quality health and education programs for local residents of all age . Some of our activities include:
- Monthly dances
- Fishing Derby in the Summer
- Bowling leagues
- Field trips
- Special Prom dance
- Supporting our Special Olympics clients
