Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce launches Lunch Mob
As part the Small Business Development Council – Buy Local Campaign
The Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce and Frankfort Chamber Ambassador’s are excited to announce the Frankfort Chambers’ next Lunch Mob on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Buddy’s Pizza in downtown Frankfort (212 W. Broadway Street)
Carmen Inman, Executive Director of the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce, said “the goal of the Chamber Lunch Mob is to encourage employers and employees to network at a local Chamber member restaurant over lunch. We all multi-task and why not have a good time networking with friends and new business partners while having lunch.”
The Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce’s first Chamber Lunch Mob was held in early October 2012 at The Dragon Pub and was a huge success. The Chamber received numerous encouraging comments to continue the Lunch Mob in 2013 and with this in mind the Chamber Ambassador’s elected to take the Lunch Mob as their community outreach project. We are excited with this new program and look forward to welcoming new faces to our February 5, 2013 lunch,” Inman added.
All employers and employees are welcome to attend the Frankfort Chamber Lunch Mob. Restaurants that are Chamber members may contact the Chamber office and get on the Lunch Mob schedule. To learn more about the Frankfort Chamber Lunch Mob contact Suzy Hosley at 502-223-8261.

U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Lexington, came to the Farmers Bank in Downtown Frankfort on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. His “Get to Know Your Congressman” meeting was held for constituents of the Sixth District. The congressman called the efforts of a bipartisan group of U.S. senators to bring about immigration reform “a sign of progress on a broken system.” just before the meeting on Tuesday. He also presented his findings on the broken down system that he has found in our U.S. Capital when it comes to unnecessary spending.
The Franklin County Community Council met on Monday, January 28, 2013 at the Paul Sawyier Public Library. This group is mostly comprised of non-profit organizations from around Franklin County. The guest speaker of this meeting was Marla Hudson of CapCity Communications, who spoke on how to best advertise your non-profit’s event.
Come sail away and leave the winter blues behind with the folks from the Frankfort Boat Club. On Saturday, January 26, 2013, the 3rd Annual Kentucky River Bash was held at the Capital Plaza Hotel. A couple hundred die-hard boating enthusiasts, who affectionately call themselves “River Rats”, danced to the Killin Time Band and DJ Tucker and partied the night away. Effectively forgetting that it was winter still.
If you missed the Quarterfinals game of the Touchstone Energy All “A” Classic Basketball Girls’ Tournament between our own Frankfort High School Lady Panthers and the girls from Bishop Brossart on Friday, January 25, 2013, then you missed one of the most exciting basketball games ever to be seen!
The Lady Panthers played with such heart and class against a very tough team. It came down to the last 18 seconds of the game. With Frankfort High down by two with a score of 37-39, but having possession of the ball, they hit a 3-point basket after a time-out to take the lead 40-39. But Bishop Brossart was able to get the ball back and run it down the court for a 2-point shot at the buzzer, essentially robbing the Lady Panthers of the win. There were several minutes of confusion after the game as it was questioned as to whether or not the ball had left the BB player’s hands before the buzzer. In the end, the score stood 40-41. Frankfort High School Lady Panthers should hold their heads high though! They have represented our town well in a state-wide tournament held in their own backyard. And, in doing so, they had the support of more fans than anyone else could bring with them! We LOVE our Lady Panthers!
