The West Side Nut Club is celebrating 100 years of history in a special way.

Members of the nut club gathered on West Franklin Street in Evansville, Indiana on Sunday to bury a time capsule filled with various items.

Deputy Mayor Steve Schaefer was present at the time capsule dedication to deliver a proclamation from Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.

"The city is 209-years-old and to think that the Nut Club, 100 years, that's very impressive," commented Deputy Mayor Schaefer. "It's a part of everybody's lives."

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb even sent over a proclamation in celebration of the nut club's 100 years of history.

If you want to know what's inside the time capsule, be prepared to wait a while. The contents won't be unveiled for 100 years until the year 2121.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
