You’re cordially invited to attend our upcoming Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon on Tuesday, July 7th.
We have a very special program hosting Kentucky Chautauqua’s, Roscoe Tarleton Goose.
Kentucky Chautauqua has brought to life more than 70 famous people from Kentucky’s past. Chautauqua performers travel to schools and community organizations throughout the state delivering historically accurate dramatizations of Kentuckians who made valuable contributions.
As a child, Roscoe Tarleton Goose took a job riding horses for a blacksmith in Louisville to help his family’s finances. By autumn of 1910, Roscoe Tarleton Goose was the leading money winning jockey at Churchill Downs and was one of the top riders in America.
A few years later, he had attracted the attention of trainer and farm owner Thomas Patrick Hayes. Hayes had a horse called Donerail he wanted Goose to ride in the Kentucky Derby. In what was a stunning victory, Roscoe Tarleton Goose and Donerail won the 1913 Kentucky Derby. The race odds were set at 91-1, the longest odds of a Derby winner, a record which still stands.
Lunch will be held at The Center for Rural Development and will begin at 12:00 (Noon).
Please make your plans to attend this very interesting luncheon.
Please note, due to current guidelines, The Center for Rural Development has restricted luncheon attendance. We will only allow 4-people to set at each table and boxed lunches will be served to attendees.
Modern Systems will be setting up thermal body temperature measurement cameras as people enter into the ballroom where the luncheon will be held.
The Center for Rural Development will limit the number of attendees to 33% of the maximum permitted occupancy of seating capacity. This standard will allow tables to maintain six feet of space between the other tables.
The above rule means that we will only have 175 seats at our luncheon.
Seating will be on a first-come; first-serve basis …. so the Chamber suggests you arrive early to secure your seats.
If you would like to ensure a seat, please RSVP to our office at 606-679-7323.
