Mamatoga Daily: Sunday, Sept. 11th

I hope everyone is out and about enjoying this beautiful Saturday readers! Don't forget tomorrow will kick off our Book Club, the book we selected as our first title is Lift by Kelly Corrigan. I've procrastinated long enough and will actually purchase the book tonight! Don't worry, if you want to participate in the Book Club tomorrow will just be a longer introduction of the book and a little more explanation of how the Book Club will work, but this coming week we will actually begin reading. We are also loving all of the submissions for the Mamatoga Marketplace and we are working on getting it up ASAP so keep the submissions coming! We will post all of the details about how to participate in the Marketplace on Monday and we will do our first Marketplace feature on Wednesday. Another fun thing coming this week will be the announcement of our Top 5 Summer in Saratoga Photo Contest submissions, which you guys will all vote on. It was extremely difficult picking our top 5 and we truly appreciate everyone who submitted a photo. So enjoy your weekend Mamatogians! We have lots of fun stuff lined up to post this week! SUNDAY:
