LaRue County Chamber of Commerce, Krista Levee

The successes of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce would not be possible without our board of directors who are tireless advocates promoting our mission as a chamber and supporting our community in countless ways.

Thank you – Kenny Rambo, 2013-14 Chamber president, for your leadership this year. I look forward to the year ahead with our new Chamber president, Katie McDowell, and the following Board of Directors: Allison Shepherd (president-elect), Kenny Rambo, Teleana Davis, Maegan Hellmueller, Pam Stephens, Nina Cundiff, Stefanie Rock, Dr. Tom Davenport, Beth Cassity, Diana Leathers, Sam Sanders, Tammy Davidson, Chuck Crain and Brian Anderson Jr., our student board member.

STATE FAIR

Summer has us gearing up to promote Hodgenville and LaRue County at the 2014 Kentucky State Fair, Aug. 14-24. We are currently making plans and recruiting volunteers for our Pride of the Counties booth. This year volunteers will be given free admission to the fair including free parking and T-shirts to wear while they are promoting our great county.

We are the proud Birthplace of Lincoln! We are excited to share with visitors Hodgenville’s Number Three ranking by the Safe Wise Report releasing its “50 Safest Cities in Kentucky” and promote our 2014 Best in Kentucky from Kentucky Living Magazine for Paula’s Hot Biscuit, voted best nonfranchise restaurant, and Lincoln Days Festival, voted best annual festival (non-music). It is a great time to promote LaRue County to visitors from all over Kentucky and other places. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the office by Aug. 1.
