Background -+

Being around children is a common theme for Mary Wawro and this makes her ever mindful of the future. Mary realized that her love of, and dedication to her own children, along with her family management skills, proved she was well suited for providing daycare to others. This labor of love became Mary’s Little Lambs Day Care which has been successfully serving Saugerties parents for over twenty years.

In operating a successful small business, Mary has mastered the skills of task management, maintaining rigorous licensing and child daycare regulations, and customer service. Mary knows first-hand that small businesses are the backbone of this country and that Ulster County needs to do more to support and draw in small businesses entrepreneurs.

As a single mother and now grandmother, Mary understands the difficulties of running a household in Ulster County, the lack of decent paying jobs, and the way taxes have adversely affected people’s basic need for housing. Mary juggled household and business duties with being a room mother at her children’s school, a den mother for Cub Scouts, and a Girl Scout Leader. Mary taught religious education classes at her church and worked on her church’s program to help those in need.

The daughter of Bill and Irene Geick, Mary grew up in the Blue Mountain hamlet of western Saugerties and graduated from Saugerties High School. In her younger days, Mary worked in her dad’s beer and soda discount stores; where she gained an appreciation for hard work as well as running a small business. Mary is the proud mother of five wonderful children: Joshua, Katrina, Alek, Natasha, and Nadia and two beautiful granddaughters, Charlie and Franceska. It is her granddaughters’ future that motivates Mary to become involved and help forge positive changes for her neighbors in Ulster County.
