Thank you for your interest in Cherokee Of Georgia events. In the lower part of
this page is a copy of the flyer being distributed for our upcoming powwow.
Note that the printed version of the flyer is printed in the standard "portrait"
mode on your printer. However, we've reduced the image shown here, so that
it will display properly on your screen.
At the bottom of this page, you'll find a link for driving directions
to the powwow grounds. The link will take you (in a new browser window)
to the MapQuest® website, with the destination address already filled
in automatically. Just fill in the address you're starting from and click
"Driving Directions." Also, at the top of the directions page, there's
a link to get a printer-friendly version of that page. When you have finished
with the directions, just close that browser window and you will come
right back to this page.
Be sure to check out our FAQ section for answers to Frequently Asked Questions!
Also at the bottom of this page, is a link to download a copy of the flyer
in PDF format. You can view or print it, as you wish. You can even print several
copies to pass along to your friends, or distribute at your workplace. You
will need the latest version of the Adobe Reader® to use the file, and
a link to download that is also at the bottom of this page.
