Jessica Davis, LaRue County Chamber of Commerce

Calling all volunteers to the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce! The summer is a very busy time for the Chamber and we can use all hands. We are currently making plans for our Pride of the Counties booth for the Kentucky State Fair. With this, there are multiple volunteer opportunities.
We will need help with set up and take down of the booth and most importantly we will need volunteers to work the booth. The State Fair is Aug. 18-28 and during this time, we will need people to man the booth and represent LaRue County. All volunteers that help with the Pride of the Counties booth will have free admission to the fair. It is a great time to promote LaRue County to visitors from all over Kentucky and other places. Also, if you go on behalf of your business or organization, you are welcome to take promotional items to promote your business during your shift.
Another good opportunity to promote your organization is the 17th annual Golf Scramble. Yes, it was rescheduled twice due to wet course conditions, but we are still very excited to be hosting it next Wednesday, July 13. The scramble will begin at 9 a.m. at the LaRue County Golf Course. We expect to have a great time.
We are still signing up teams and accepting hole sponsorships. Remember the more teams that play, the better the winning jackpot will be, so get some people together that you work with and come out and have a great time, while promoting your organization. There will be great food provided by Atria Assisted Living, IGA and Hod-genville Grill. Drinks will be provided by Save-A-Lot and Pamida and dessert provided by The Sweet Shoppe. We have also been fortunate to have a ton of prizes donated – too many to list here, but all sponsors will be mentioned at the scramble and in a later article. And if you don’t play golf, you can always come out and volunteer.
I would like to take the time to thank everyone that attended the Chamber of Commerce annual meeting. It was a very enjoyable occasion and it was nice to see everyone that was there. Also, I would like to again thank everyone that helped with the planning and preparation of the event.
Former Chamber Director Rita Williams told me that “many hands make light work” when I first took this position and this community showed me that at the annual meeting.
I look forward to seeing many of you soon. Remember if you want information about joining the Chamber or if you need information about one of our events, you can contact me at 358-3411 or email jessica@ laruecountychamber.org.
