Chamber Community Club

The Laurel Chamber Community Club (LCCC), comprised mainly of community members representing various businesses in Laurel. They sponsor various events throughout the year, with the support of local businesses and individuals in the Laurel community and surrounding areas, and has since its inception in 1902.  The organization was established “to assure mutual and combined interest of the businessmen in Laurel and advance the general welfare of the village.” 

The Easter Egg Hunt and Ag Days have been annual community celebrations for many years.  In addition to these, the Laurel Chamber has added more events to its yearly calendar, adding Night of Lights in 2009, and Cruise Night in 2016, as well as a Football Tailgate fundraiser, first held in 2013.  The proceeds of the Chamber Tailgate are donated to LCC School District.

Community members serving on the Laurel Chamber Community Club board typically serve a term of three years.
