Next to Newsletter- Monday, May 7, 2012


Good morning! 
Yep, this week's newsletter is a tad late- we've been busy with trips to Macon and multiple end-of-year graduation activities. We're enjoying every bittersweet minute since this is the last time we'll be doing it.

It's graduation time! Here at N2N, we've watched so many of the current grads grow up and we're proud of each and every one of you!
Everyone wants to look their best for those graduation day photos, so here's our little gift to you: Bring your graduation gown by N2N any time before May 15th and we'll steam out the wrinkles for you. Those package folds can be stubborn but they're no match for our steamer! We just ask that you stick around while we do it- no drop offs, please.
There's no charge- just our way of telling you congratulations!

Duct Tape- Not just for repairs anymore!


We've spent the last year scrolling through page after page of scholarship listings. One of the most interesting ones we found was the scholarship for creating the best prom outfits made using duct tape. Judging from these submissions, it couldn't  have been an easy decision!

Genius! Pure genius!

Here are some great ideas- smart tips to make life easier!

This is the fourth and final tier of the annual speech scholarship contest. Each year almost 5,000 Georgia middle and high school students write and deliver a 4- to 5-minute speech on a designated topic. This year the topic was, "How my optimism helps me overcome obstacles."
Rachel, who plans to enroll in North Georgia College and State University's 2013 Honors Program, received a $2,500 scholarship.
