The Spencer County Chamber of Commerce has events for the young and the young at heart over the next few weeks.
First, voters will have the opportunity to rub elbows with candidates such as Republican candidate for U.S. Congress Brett Guthrie, who will stop by the chamber for a meet and greet at 4 p.m. tomorrow. Guthrie is running against Democrate David Boswell for the seat now held by retiring Second District U.S. Representative Ron Lewis.
Afterwards, Republican candidate Tim Gray will be on hand at 6 p.m. for a forum. He is running against Democratic candidate Kent Stevens for Kentucky House District 55. Stevens was also invited to the event, but declined said Chamber President Jerry Davis, due to a full calendar.
Those planning to attend this event should R.S.V.P. to the Chamber by emailing spencercountykychamber.com or by calling 477-8369, to make sure there is plenty of food for all. The cost for the evening is $7 for members and $10 for non-members. Food will be provided by Chamber Director Sharon Thomas.
Next month, community members can help out while enjoying good country music November 1, when the Chamber hosts the Christmas on Main Street Benefit.
The cost will be $5 per person. Music will begin at 6 p.m. with the sounds of John D. followed by Megan Stout who will be next in the line-up before Kowboy Keith Thomas, Shelly Baby and then the Chamber’s own Jerry Davis taking the stage around 9 p.m.
Concessions will be available, and all proceeds will go towards the Christmas on Main Street event scheduled for December 12.
“The benefit is to raise money to purchase gifts for the kids,” said Thomas. “There will be quite a few changes this year.”
Children attending Christmas on Main this year will be directed to visit Santa at the fiscal court building, and register to receive a gift from Santa later that evening. There will be four age groups and, with the benefit and donations from members of the community, hopefully all the kids will receive a gift. Chamber members plan to give away four major gifts, one for each age group.
Christmas on Main festivities will begin at 6 p.m. December 12, with the town Christmas tree being lit at approximately 6:30 p.m. by Mayor Don Pay and County Judge David Jenkins.
There will be many activities going on and everyone is welcome to come to the town square and get involved.
Watch the Spencer Magnet for more information as time gets closer to Christmas on Main Street, but don’t forget to do your part and attend the benefit on November 1.
