Chamber Community Club

The purpose of the Laurel Chamber Community Club is to promote business, education, agriculture, tourism and “The Good Life” that our state of Nebraska is known for.

The Laurel Chamber Community Club (LCCC) is a group of committed community volunteers that work together to plan events and activities that benefit our businesses and our community. These events are held throughout the year, with the support of local businesses and individuals in Laurel and surrounding communities.. The organization was established in 1902, “to assure mutual and combined interest of the businessmen in Laurel and advance the general welfare of the village.”
