Mamatoga Daily: Thursday, Sept. 22nd

This week is almost wrapping up readers, we have a few activities going on tomorrow and a couple weekend sneak peek activities I want to mention tonight as well. We also added some new items to our Marketplace today, so check those items out! Our Sittertoga page is up and running with all the guidelines on how to put in a sitter request and how to submit information to be in our sitter database, we hope you Mamas are setting up some good date nights or drinks with the girls because we have sitters waiting for jobs right here at Mamatoga, the ONLY site for Moms and kids in the Saratoga area that offers this feature! We are starting to phase out our facebook "friend" page, so if you haven't already please "like" our Mamatoga fan page on facebook in order to stay in touch with everything that is happening with Mamatoga. And, as always, you can email us anytime at mamatogablog@gmail.com to let us know of events you think we should share with our readers, and if it's something really exciting for our readers we can also feature it, for free!
