Woodstock First Baptist Church Parking Lot

Woodstock, 30188

The Chamber is excited to announce the April Good Morning Cherokee (GMC) is being rescheduled as a "drive-up" event! Drive-up GMC will be held in a parking lot of Woodstock First Baptist Church. To listen to the program you can stay in your vehicle and tune in on your radio, or since there will also be a PA system, feel free to bring a lawn chair and sit in an open parking space, as a parking space will be left empty between each vehicle to allow for social distancing. Attendees will receive a bottle of water and boxed breakfast upon arrival with the breakfast to include: egg-n-cheese breakfast burrito, side of hickory smoked bacon, granola bar, muffin & fresh seasonal fruit. Please note restroom facilities will not be available.

We look forward to offering drive-up GMC as a very safe networking opportunity for you in July! We will keep you informed regarding how we will handle the Good Morning Cherokee breakfasts that were postponed in May & June as well as those planned for August – December.

Cherokee County’s Communications Division has launched a community survey to learn more about how constituents want to receive news and event information from the county.

The communications division was launched in early May to assist the Board of Commissioners, county manager’s office and other county government offices communicate news and events to the public.   

The survey will be open until the end of July and all responses are anonymous.
