Decorate a Wreath & Make a Difference!
The Chamber Staff encourages you to join with Express Employment Professionals in supporting Wreaths Across America through the 4th Annual Christmas Wreath Decorating Contest. Express Employment Professionals invites any companies and organizations in Cherokee County to participate. Members of the Express team will be distributing pre-requested wreaths later this month. They will pick up your decorated wreath the second week in December. All entries will be posted on the Express Employment Professionals' Facebook page where viewers can vote for their favorite with the winner receiving $100. On December 16th, as part of the National Wreaths Across America event, they will be laying the wreaths at the grave sites of fallen heroes in Cherokee County's Georgia National Cemetery.
