Coweta Special Olympics delayed to Thursday

by Staff Reports - news@newnan.com

The Coweta County Special Olympics event is being delayed until Thursday.

After discussions with Coweta County Emergency Management Director Jay Jones, organizers have decided to postpone the Special Olympics Spring Games at Newnan High School until Thursday, said Kelly Abercrombie, therapeutic recreation director with the Coweta County School System.

Events will be “same time, same place” Thursday morning at Drake Stadium, said Abercrombie in the announcement Monday afternoon.

“Severe storms are headed our way. Rain will continue through Wednesday,” said Abercrombie. “A concern of the meteorologist making the report is that the worst of the storm will happen during the night when people are normally asleep, so be prepared,” she said.

Abercrombie said she will give further updates should there be any other changes due to the weather.
