EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wednesday, April 10 marks one year since the tragedy in Louisville, Ky., that claimed the lives of five Old National team members. In memory of these individuals, and in honor of others who were impacted, all Old National offices outside of Louisville will close at 1 p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET on April 10. This will allow ONB team members throughout the bank’s footprint to simultaneously participate in an afternoon “Walk to Remember.”

Additionally, all Louisville offices will be closed for the full day on April 10. This will enable team members to dedicate this solemn day of remembrance to caring for themselves and one another.

“One year ago, our Old National family lost five beloved team members: Josh Barrick, Deana Eckert, Tommy Elliott, Juliana Farmer and Jim Tutt,” said Old National Chairman and CEO Jim Ryan. “We remain committed to keeping their memories alive, and to giving our team members the time they need – on this emotional day – to mourn the friends they lost, and to love, care for and support one another.”

In partnership with the American Red Cross, Old National will also host blood drives in multiple locations throughout its footprint the week of April 10. Blood donations proved critical to saving lives during the Louisville tragedy, and American Red Cross donations are currently at a 20-year low.

“We will never forget those we lost, nor will we forget those who provided us with comfort and helped us heal,” said Dennis Heishman, President of Old National’s Louisville market. “On April 10, our team members will remember their fallen friends, and acknowledge everyone else who was impacted by this tragedy.”
