From the Girls - March/April 2018
It’s hard to believe we are celebrating our 10year anniversary. It seems like just yesterday we were working on our business plan and reaching our to our advisory board for advice on getting RSVP rolling!
We have dedicated several pages to the numerous team members, contributors and advertisers that have made this journey a success. We hope it will give you a glimpse into all the hard work, loads of fun and strong relationships built through this publication. Several of our team members are pictured here but there are several others that make up our team. Special thanks to our newest contributing writers, Angela Hardgrave, Liz Vinson and Ashley Whittle Tiedt whose writtenwords craft the articles you love to read.
This issue also contains several other features we think you will enjoyreading, like the article on Doug’s 2, which has been one of our most loyal supporters for the past ten years. While that sounds like a long time to us, Doug’s 2 has been serving clients for over 40 years and has one of the most successful Aveda salons in the South. We are sothankful for their partnership.
Valiant Cross Academy is making a huge impact on the lives of manyyoung African American men. Started by Anthony Brock three years ago with only 30 students, the program continues to grow and will have a high school class next year thanks to their partnership with Troy University. Valiant Cross is one of the most incredible ministries we have ever seen.
Spring is in the air, and if you are looking for a retreat within a short drive, Dahlonega is a place you will want to check out. Full of history, this best kept secret is equipped with a bed and breakfast with beautiful views, vineyards, hiking trails, shops, restaurants, a firstclass spa and a local pub where you can unwind to live music by local singer/songwriters.
