The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about all the activities the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce are involved in, during Tuesday's weekly luncheon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.


Mary Renner, executive director of the Christian County Economic Development Corporation, stood in for Patty Hornbuckle, Chamber C-E-O, who was present but had lost her voice.


Renner outlined the many things the Chamber is a part of in the Taylorville community. The Chamber is holding its February “Business After Hours” February 18th from 4:30 to 6:30 in the afternoon, at the Miller Media Group studios at 918 East Park. The Chamber is also one of the host organizations for the annual “LEAD” program to enable county business leaders to learn about business and government in a 5-month program that meets every Tuesday afternoon.


The Taylorville Chamber was part of last week's Taylorville High School Scholarship Fair to promote its college scholarships, and is also one of the sponsoring organizations of the newly-formed Christian County C-E-O program to help teach Christian County high school seniors entrepreneurial skills.


And the Chamber is also holding a spring fund-raiser called the “Spring Swing”, which is a putt putt golf event at area bars, on March 7th.
