Our reader Jessica Speanburg and her mother graciously donated back one of their winning tickets for one lucky reader, thanks Jessica! Also stay tuned this week for our continuing in-depth Mamatoga Preschool Series. Last week we featured questions you should ask when considering preschools, and this week we'll discuss preschool readiness as well as feature one of our fantastic local preschools. We also added a great new item to our Marketplace and put a call out to all of our Mamatogians who sell their items on Etsy. We want to feature you here so if you have your own Etsy store contact me at and we'll get you included in our feature. We've had a busy day at Sittertoga today too lining up Mamas with sitters getting ready for the weekend, if you're still looking contact us because we still have a ton of options available.
