If you passed by the Golden Corral restaurant in Henderson on Monday, you may have seen a Betsy Ross lookalike waving an early version of the American flag.

The woman who stitched the first American flag was spotted in Henderson, Kentucky on Monday.

A woman dressed up as Betsy Ross was seen waving the flag proudly in front of the Golden Corral in Henderson.

The Ross lookalike was there to bring awareness and support for "Heroes Outreach Service Providers (HOSP) Veterans Outreach," a non-profit organization created by a local couple.

The couple has been working to get the non-profit off the ground for the past year, hoping to provide homeless veterans a place to stay in Henderson.

"We got a lot of hungry, homeless vets here," said Rodney Bond with HOSP Veterans Outreach. "Trouble is we got no shelters in Henderson to house them or feed them. They're all in Evansville. I want to change that. I mean, we got vets here that are homeless and hungry too."

The couple is also trying to raise money for a POW/MIA memorial that would be built in Henderson.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
