Mamatoga Daily: Monday, Sept. 5th

Well readers, I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but the forecast for Monday isn't looking so hot. I might take the rain as an advantage and use the day to get ready for school starting this week, breaking out the Name Bubbles and frantically labeling everything in sight, but just in case the weather does hold up there are just a couple goings on scheduled for Monday. Let us know if there is anything else we can add to the mix!  While you're out getting last minute school supplies pick up a copy of Lift by Kelly Corrigan for our Book Club, and remember, Tuesday at midnight is the end of submission time for our Summer in Saratoga Photo Contest, so get those pics in! We can't wait to have you all vote on the awesome photos everyone has taken! It was so much fun meeting some of you this weekend at the track and downtown, our favorite thing is to meet our Mamatogians while we're out and about! We're going to be doing a lot of Back to School posts this week, both for moms and kids, so stay tuned to your number one source for cool moms and kids in Saratoga, and thanks for reading! MONDAY:
