Mamatoga Daily: Sunday, September 18

There is a lot going on around town and the weather is perfect to get out there and visit it all.  A few reminders - our book club will post new questions for Chapters One and Two of Lift, by Kelly Corrigan Sunday evening.  Feel free to post any and all comments on the page we reserved for book club!  Don't forget to vote on the finalists for our Summer Photo Contest here.  It will bring you to Fridays Daily, then scroll down to get to the poll.  Our Freebie Friday was extended through the weekend, so check out the prize and the question to enter to win here.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  We visited the Battleground for the 234th Anniversary of the Battle of Saratoga, which is continuing on Sunday.  The girls had a blast - especially when they demonstrated the 6 pound cannon!!
