Mamatoga Daily: Thursday, Oct. 27th

Today at Mamatoga we continued our original Preschool Series with some tips on how to deal with separation anxiety in preschoolers. We also did our Halloween Round-up including all of our fun Halloween links and info on what Halloween events are going on locally and more! I'm not sure how I feel about this alleged snow for tomorrow but hopefully all of you Mamatogians have a great Thursday!

  • Also at the Saratoga Library, Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering free Save Energy, Save Dollars. Each attendee will receive FREE energy saving items valued at $15 including a CFL light bulb. The class will explore the many ways to reduce home energy bills through no-cost/low-cost energy actions. These Workshops, conducted by Cornell Cooperative Extension, are part the EmPower New York Program sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Attendees will increase their awareness of the actual energy cost of various components of their homes, identify measures they can take to reduce energy usage, become aware of energy programs and resources available, and develop a specific action plan to reduce energy usage in their home thereby saving dollars.
