Last Grab 'n Go meal event Friday

Aging & In-Home Services will have its final Community Grab 'n Go Meal Distribution from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Parkview Field.

The last event of this year – due to funding for the program being ended – will be held as usual in the ballpark's Silver Lot as supplies last. Aging & In-Home Services has hosted the meal distribution biweekly since April in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AIHS asks attendees to enter the lot off Baker Street and to not arrive prior to before 10 a.m. This event is for individuals 60 and older who must provide a photo ID and telephone number. Each attendee will receive two prepackaged boxes of five shelf-stable meals (10 total) at no charge.

O'Reilly Embassy show rescheduled

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the upcoming Bill O'Reilly show that was originally scheduled for Oct. 16 has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. May 8, Embassy Theatre said in a news release.

Tickets for the original date will be honored for the new date. Patrons unable to attend will be provided a refund at the point of purchase upon request for the next 30 days.

Embassy or purchases using a credit or debit card can be digitally refunded. Any refund request could take up to a month to process. Individuals who bought tickets with cash or gift card should call the Embassy. The theater can't refund tickets that were bought through other channels such as secondary ticket sellers.

Indiana will provide local adult education programs reimbursement for test fees for students who take the high school equivalency through Dec. 30, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development said in a Monday news release.

To qualify, students must be Indiana residents, currently enrolled in an adult education program and have successful scores on a practice exam.
