It looks like winter is finally behind us. The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce has been, and continues to be, busily involved with a number of activities including planning and preparing for two important events.
The first event is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The Chamber will hold its 17th Annual Golf Scramble on April 30. We hold this event to offset operation expenses and to provide an opportunity for our community to come together and have a good time.
Here are tips for the perfect hard cooked eggs this Easter season from the American Egg Board. Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1-inch. Heat pan over high heat just to boiling. Remove from burner, cover pan.
Let eggs stand in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra large). Drain immediately and serve warm or cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then refrigerate.
LaRue County’s prom is this Saturday.
Many teens have made reservations for pre-prom dining in Louisville, Bardstown or Bowling Green. Others may be skipping the tradition due to lack of funds or parental concerns, said Linda Lindsey, owner of My Gal Boutique in Hodgenville.
Lindsey, along with Rooney Gray, owner of MAM Candy, is planning an alternate evening for prom-goers that includes a meal by candlelight, photography session and horse-drawn carriage ride – all at MAM in downtown Hodgenville.
