Golf Scramble Was A Success!

Wow, this year’s annual golf scramble was one of the biggest scrambles that we have ever held! And we could not have done it without the support of so many businesses and volunteers. First, we would like to thank the golfers who participated in the scramble. Without their participation, we would not have had such a successful fundraiser. There were 16 teams that participated in our scramble, which created a lot of excitement and challenge. We hope that they will all come out again next year!

We would like to thank all of the 2012 golf scramble sponsors. Our Scoreboard Sponsor was Magnolia Bank. The scoreboard sponsorship was a new sponsorship that was offered this year to help increase the promotion opportunities for our members and to help the Chamber raise additional funds. We sincerely appreciate Magnolia Bank taking advantage of this opportunity and helping the Chamber. Papa John’s of Hodgenville was very generous and donated pizza for all of our golfers and volunteers! We would like to thank them for being our Lunch Sponsor. Also, we would like to thank the following businesses for their food/beverage donations: Pamida for donating water, Save-a-Lot for donating soft drinks, IGA for donating chips, Subway for donating cookies and The Sweet Shoppe for donating dessert. These businesses continue to donate each and every year and we appreciate their continuous support!

This year the golf scramble committee decided to allow hole sponsors to sit up a table and chairs on the hole that they sponsored. This seemed to be a big hit with both the golfers and the businesses that set up. Thank you to all of the businesses that set up. We hope you will do this again next year!

Leadership LaRue County – Building a strong foundation for the future of LaRue County

Leadership LaRue County was formed in 2005 to provide educational experiences for present and future leaders to develop knowledge of their community, to foster appreciation for their community, and to encourage civic involvement.

The program is designed to:

* Provide emerging leaders with the information and skills necessary to take on leadership roles in their workplace and community;

* Foster interest in and promote educational, civic, and social service activities in their community, &

* Promote the education and training of individuals with a variety of occupations and  interests in the community for leadership and involvement in public affairs by establishing effective communication and peer relationships among them.


The Program

Leadership LaRue was organized by a committee of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce, in an effort to develop the knowledge and expertise of LaRue County’s present and future leaders.

The program begins with a one-day retreat for team-building. The next eight months include intensive one-day sessions relating to critical issues facing the community, culminating in a final graduation ceremony for the Leadership Class.

Each session includes lectures, group discussions, tours, and other activities. Experienced leaders and authorities from their respective fields of endeavor will present a wealth of information.

Each class will be asked to plan a project which they feel will meet a significant community need.



Attendance at all sessions and graduation is mandatory. No one missing more than two day sessions will graduate. Retreat is mandatory.
