Thomasville, GA. -- We hear a great deal about all the Katrina evacuees who are staying in Houston, but there are at least 50 or so of them who have taken refuge in Georgia's Rose City.
There has been a great out-pouring of support for the people who had to flee their coastal homes.
Each night, there's been an unofficial round-robin on individuals and businesses who are taking it on themselves to provide an evening meal for the Gulf Coast residents who are staying in Thomasville hotels. Attendance has ranged from ten, to over 40.
They set up tables and chairs at the Holiday Inn Express, and then spread out a combination of restaurant and home cooked food for the new, temporary residents, and it's free to them. Thursday night, Caldwell and Langford Insurance did the honors.
The evacuees comprise a cross section of age, race, and levels of loss. Some have lost all they had, and some don't know anything because they can't get back, and can't get word.
Some hotels, like the Holiday Inn Express, have reduced normal room rates as much as 75%. The Red Cross has set up a canteen at 115 E. Washington Street, and the phone number is 229-226-2181.
