Mamatoga Daily: Monday, Sept. 19th

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend Mamatogians! I myself am pleasantly tired out from a fantastic weekend trip up to Lake Placid. We visited S.'s alma mater Northwood School, the Olympic Ski Jump Complex, had an amazing meal at Eat and Meet and hiked some beautiful trails! I hope everyone had a great weekend as well, and here are some activities for Monday to start your week off right!
