The Oldham County Chamber of Commerce sponsors the annual business “showcase.” The event features many prize drawings and giveaways, a prom style show, silent auction, live auction, demonstrations, food court and children’s activities. It is a great way to see what products and services are available by area chamber members and meet old friends at the many social opportunities it presents.
“Our booths have been filling up quickly this year, and everyone seems optimistic for a great year in 2004,” said Kathy Jacobs, special events coordinator for the chamber.
This year’s event again will be highlighted by a chamber luncheon on Friday, Feb. 6, during which the annual “Oldham County Top Achievers” awards will be presented. This is the second year for this new event and awards, and it is sponsored by the Bedford Bank, BellSouth and the chamber. The business awards are selected by a committee whose members review nominations made by those businesses who choose to participate. The categories are “Bedford Bank” Community Service Award; “BellSouth Business of the Year (Small Business 1-24 employees); Business of the Year (Large Business 25-plus employees); E-Business of the Year; Home-Based Business of the Year; and Non-Profit Business of the Year.
Bill Samuels of Maker’s Mark will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon, which begins at noon. Afterward, luncheon guests will be invited to a sneak preview of the Showcase booths from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The door open to the public on Saturday at 10 a.m. Special events planned for the day include a prom style show, magician, performance by the Oldham County Singers and a live 9 a.m. broadcast of Cindy Sullivan’s morning TV show on WHAS from the site. Children’s activities include the Monkey Lady, Astro Jump and face painting. Admission to the event is free.
Participating in the food court this year are Hometown Pizza, A Taste of Heaven, Euro-Market, Uncle Joe’s Italian Deli; and Westport General Store, and the South Oldham Rotary Club.
