Hyperlocal Publisher Shout Out: Essential Mom

by: Dick OHare, on Nov 7, 2011 in Publisher Shout Outs

Moms need local information non-stop.  Gretchen Menzies established as her answer to the never-ending question: “How can I get everything done when there are only so many hours in a day?” is designed by mothers for mothers. It is the solution for the busy Westchester County, NY mom who would rather play with her kids than spend a day “planning” to play with them. This 24-hour, one-stop-shop has the answers for all things parenting: resources for classes, groups, schools, camps, birthday party resources, local events, summer camp information and more.  A “friend” to parents throughout Westchester, can be visited during good days and bad, late at night or early in the morning. It’s a place where parents can find easily-understood, non-judgmental information. Menzies hopes that they can also find a laugh or two on the side.
