- This weekend is Read Across America, which starts on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss's birthday. Macaroni Kid has a great article full of fun foods to enjoy with your child in honor of Dr. Seuss. Visit Kumon of Southbury in the same plaza as the Southford Dunkin Donuts (intersection of 67 at 188) for a free Literacy event and open house on Saturday with free activities for the kids.
