  • Thank you to Hardin County Chamber

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce and to all who made this years second annual “Cruisin' the Heartland” such a great event. I volunteer with Kosair Charities and had a booth selling raffle tickets to win a car, with all proceeds going in to children’s transplant and research. What a super support the charity got from the people of Elizabethtown/Hardin County who attended the show! This is an awesome event, one I hope will continue to grow bigger and bigger each year!
