Houston, TX 77094 DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME starts MARCH 11, 2018 Daylight Saving Time (DST) is often wrongly referred to as “Daylight Savings,” with an “s” at the end. Other common variations are “Summer Time” and “Daylight-Saving Time.” The term “Daylight Savings Time” is very commonly used, especially in Australia, Canada and the United States. It’s likely that the incorrect term “savings” entered the popular vocabulary because it’s so often used in everyday contexts, like “savings account.” At the beginning of the DST period in the spring, clocks are moved forward, usually by 1 hour. When DST ends in fall (autumn), clocks are turned back again. DST does not add daylight, but it gives more usable hours of daylight. In that sense, DST “saves” daylight, especially during early spring. Standard time refers to time without DST. spring forward !!! 2 March 2018 | Lakes of Eldridge Community Newsletter

LOEST is a voluntary recreational swim team operated for Lakes on Eldridge and surrounding neighborhoods. LOEST encourages a competitive swim team environment and provides the opportunity for growth, training, enjoyment, good sportsmanship and participation to all active team members.
