Dick Van Dyke Plans a June Homecoming


DANVILLE – Hollywood legend and Danville native, Dick Van Dyke may be returning to his hometown this coming June.

The 90-year-old actor is planning to visit his childhood home, which recently came off the condemned list. The Dick Van Dyke Foundation is restoring the home after years of neglect.

Van Dyke helped to put together a plan to save the house, after hearing that it could be torn down.

It will eventually be turned into the Dick Van Dyke Foundation, a center that will give scholarships to students interested in the performing arts.
