What is GetLocalMA.com?

We are a company started by two local moms from Sudbury.  We are about everything LOCAL going on in our town and surrounding towns.  Striving to be a one-stop-shop for local community information for busy people. Within our website pages you will find information about our schools, sports, local dining spots and so much more.  We have an events section, information about where to pick the best apples, which beaches allow dogs, etc. GetLocalMA.com is bringing our community together by helping people find out what is going on and also by being a resource for local businesses to inform people about what they have going on as well. We are working with many of the local charities, schools and other non-profits to help them to reach the community.  Our projects included working with Smilemass, Wounded Warriors, grade schools and high schools to help with fundraising.  Our next big project is helping the 375th  Sudbury Anniversary Committee with all of the great events that they have coming up for our towns anniversary celebration.  We are a great community resource doing many great things.
