Harrisburg Tornado Victims' Memorial
Old National donates funding and land.
On February 29, 2012, an F4 tornado hit Harrisburg, Ill. killing 8 people and injuring many more. The lives lost and vast devastation deeply affected the entire community including many Old National associates and clients.
"Mayor Gregg and Chief Summers spoke very highly of Old National and thanked us for our support," said Herb. "And several family members thanked me for what we have done to help the community and to memorialize their lost loved ones. All were grateful and some teary eyed, when I told them we wanted each family to keep the shovels they held at the groundbreaking."
The goal is to have the memorial in place before the first anniversary of the storm.
