After 70 years, the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Chamber of Commerce held its final luncheon Thursday.
The chamber, founded in 1941 with 61 members, is combining with three other local chambers to form the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.
Vine Grove Chamber of Commerce held its final meeting earlier this week and Radcliff will host its final meeting Monday at Colvin Community Center with Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall as the keynote speaker.
“We want to be the most aggressive Chamber in the state, using our time, talent and resources to make Hardin County the best place to live and work,” E’town Chamber President Rik Hawkins told the group gathered Thursday at Pritchard Community Center.
The first general members meeting of the new Hardin County Chamber of Commerce is March 10 at Severns Valley Baptist Church.
The chamber’s annual Health Expo was conducted as part of the midday meeting.
Also, Glen McPherson, who helped direct last year’s community canned food collection, presented a certificate from Guinness World Records acknowledging the world record for the largest canned food structure.
The wall, erected Aug. 25, contained 137,000 cans but more than 207,000 were collected. With help from Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, the food is being distributed as needed by North Hardin HOPE and Helping Hand of the Heartland.
