Chamber Organizes Buy Local Task Force

Madisonville, KY – Hopkins County officials and business owners are reviving a group to promote buying locally. Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce President Harriet Whittaker says in years past businesses have gotten together at the beginning of the holiday season to organize open houses and local gift buying. That hasn't happened in the last few years. September 9, the Chamber will host a task force organizational meeting. Whittaker has invited members and non-member businesses to attend and share their ideas. She hopes the group will continue past the Christmas season to promote business year round.
