On Thanksgiving Day from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., the Evansville Rescue Mission (ERM) will be hosting a Thanksgiving Feast for non-residential guests, free of charge.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the meal will be served in a tent set up in the parking lot of the Mission, and seating will be limited to 30 individuals at a time. Social distancing measures will also be in place, and face coverings will be required inside the tent except while seated and eating.

"Each day since the pandemic started, the ERM has provided Grab 'n Go meals three times each day for those in need," explained Evansville Rescue Mission President/CEO Tracy Gorman. "It was our hope that, at least on this special day, our non-residential guests from the community could sit down and enjoy their Thanksgiving feast in a warm, safe, well-decorated space."

According to Gorman, the Evansville Police Department donated the tent that will be used for the Thanksgiving Feast event, and a number of different donors supplied the decorations and food.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
