Edmonson Voice Report:
The Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce held their "Fall Cookout on the Square," on Saturday, September 24th.
The Chamber provided meals for anyone stopping by that included hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chips, soft drinks and homemade chocolate chip cookies.
Chamber board members grilled, prepared, and served the food at the event that saw dozens of people throughout the event.
Newly hired Chamber Coordinator Kayla Childress served nearly all the dishes on Saturday in her first official event, and many locals enjoyed speaking with her.
"We were grateful to have the opportunity to serve so many people on Saturday," she said. "The Chamber is really focused on serving our local business community right now, and this was something extra we wanted to."
The event was free and sponsored in part by Rafferty's, Patton Funeral Home, Bank of Edmonson County, Edmonson County Tourism, A Plus Family Healthcare, and Alford's Pharmacy.
Chamber Vice President Josh Casey of C&C Firearms said not only did the Chamber members enjoy providing the meal, but they were also able to purchase nearly all of the supplies used at the event from Chamber members and local businesses.
"The goal of the Chamber is provide support for our local business community and this was just a way to say thanks to not only our Chamber members, but also our community members as well," he said.
The unused food items were donated to Genesis Healthcare Edmonson Center and the Edmonson County Senior Food Pantry.
Childress is currently putting the final touches on the annual Chamber of Commerce Golf Scramble, which will offer over $2,000 in cash and prizes. To sign up or to find out more, visit edmonsonchamber.com.
Mammoth Cave Cabin Rentals is a growing business that is not only a brand new Gold Partner of the Chamber of Commerce, but also a popular place for tourists to enjoy our area with beautiful views and excellent accommodations that is owned by Dagmar and David Rennaker.
Dagmar Rennaker was born in Germany but moved to America with her parents when she was very young. She retired after 30 years as an Occupational Therapist and her husband, David, is retired from the Army and retired a second time from the Cintas Corporation.
They own "Flock and Herd Farm," which you can see in the valley on Brier Creek Rd. They are avid animal lovers with five dogs, angus cattle, mini cows, sulcatta tortises, and mini goats. Dagmar and David left corporate America six years ago to retire to the country and enjoy their farm.
They soon realized they needed to share their good fortune of living in such a paradise, and started this adventure with the cabins. They now have 11 cabins on their 30 acres as well as a lake and 14 ponds in addition to several miles of hiking trails.
They have a pavilion for guest events, kayaks, and mini bass boats for use on the lake. They are also able to accommodate business meetings with a conference room nearby.
They are located on Brooks Road, Mammoth Cave, KY, 42259.

Mrs. Kayla Childress has been named the new Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce Coordinator.
