D 5: Got Lemons? Make Lemonade for a Cause

And check out the best- and worst-dressed at the Oscars...

1. Expect some clouds today, with a high temperature in the low 50s. Not bad, all in all. Happy Monday!

2. The Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children’s Publishing Group will partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) on a fundraising campaign based on Jacqueline Davies’ novel, "The Lemonade War." Elementary and middle school students, using the business tips woven into Davies’ novel, will run lemonade stands this spring, with the proceeds going to ALSF, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting childhood cancer.    

Contest registration opened Feb. 1. Fundraising will begin on April 2, with all proceeds due to ALSF by May 2. The school that raises the most money will win a visit from Davies and Jay or Liz Scott, founders of ALSF. For more, click here.

3. Did you know that Daylight Saving Time starts March 11? That's less than two weeks from today!

4. The Montville Mohegan Lions Club Annual Brunch is Sunday, March 4, at the Mohegan Fire House. For more, click here!

5. On this day in 1908, the sacrifice fly rule was adopted. It was repealed in 1931 and reinstated in 1954. 

EXTRA! EXTRA! For all of you who just like looking at the clothes, here is the London Telegraph's roundups of the best-dressed from the Oscars, and the worst-dressed.
