Heritage Partners Along the River Walk

The Heritage Partners is an active organization throughout our community and best know for their work on the Murphy River Walk. It’s only fitting that we take in the natural beauty of our community during this last month of Summer.

We’ll see you Thursday August 15th from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Pavilion near the Rock Gym and Murphy Health & Fitness. Click here to watch our WKRK Wednesday Facebook Live video with Elo-ly and Corey Bailey of Heritage Partners as they share details about this Networking event.

Congratulations to our Door Prize Winners at last month’s AfterHours! Elo-ly Bailey, Barbara Hughes, and Corey Bailey were the lucky table at Bojangles’ in Murphy!

We celebrated the first anniversary of Bojangles’ in Murphy with a Ribbon Cutting and AfterHours networking event Thursday July 18th. Bojangles’ provided true Southern hospitality and an impressive spread, including their new pimento cheese that wowed all in attendance. Pictures center with scissors are owner, Crystal and general manager, Kristi. Holding the ribbon at the left is marketing director, Regina and on the right, catering manager, Ronda. For information and catering, contact Bojangles’ at 828-516-2105 and visit their location at 1563 Andrews Road in Murphy.

Two-For-One Special!

Our July Ambassador is the best two-for-one… Elo-ly Bailey is always out and about with her husband, Corey, volunteering with Cherokee County Master Gardeners, Arts Council, Heritage Partners, and our Chamber of Commerce. Logging 1,000 volunteer hours in just the Master Gardeners alone, they have also served on the Friends of Murphy Library and Valley River Humane Society.

We are beyond grateful to have Elo-ly and Corey supporting this community that they have called home for the past 15 years. With the experience from their career in Claims and Risk Management, they have been an asset to the boards on which they serve. While they love to be a part of our community with such diverse interests, they moved to be closer to their daughter and grandchildren in Marietta. We honestly don’t know how they keep up with it all, but we’re so grateful!

In their free time, Elo-ly and Corey enjoy the quiet beauty around their house. Sharing their 5 acres with deer, turkeys, wood ducks, fish, 8 cats, and 1 dog certainly helps them recharge to go right back out and serve in this beautiful mountain community.

If you haven’t met the Baileys yet, we would love to introduce you at our August 15th AfterHours with Heritage Partners on the Murphy River Walk. They’re always fun to chat with, so grab a glass of wine and they can tell you about some great ways to experience the whole county: from the rivers to the mountains, the fun of small town shopping, and some delicious local restaurants. Just remember to let us know… what’s your favorite way to enjoy Cherokee County?
