Daylight Savings Time begins March 8 | Around The Town

daylight-savings-time

It’s time to spring forward as daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 8. Before going to bed tonight turn your clocks ahead one hour so you are not late for church and other activities.
This is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke alarms say firefighters.
Daylight saving time has been used in the U.S. since WWI, however, it was not formally adopted into law until 1974. Over the years the Act has been amended and any state wanting to exempt from Daylight Saving Time can do so by passing a state law.
Moreover, a state in two or more time zones can exempt part of the state that is in one time zone and observe daylight saving time in another part of the state.
