Spring forward with hand

Many of our members stay up until 2:00 a.m. to change their clocks at exactly the right time

Spring Ahead

Daylight “Saving” or “Savings” Time?


This is an excerpt from:

Dream Job:


On the day clocks changed in Austria a few years ago, DMC assistant vice president Grover Click took this photo at Vienna’s Uhrenmuseum (clock museum) that has 3,000 clocks to change

Topics to discuss:

•  Effects on our lives from losing the hour; compare this with gaining the hour in the fall.

•  Whether you like DST or would prefer that we don’t have it.

Opting out:

*  Not all areas of the U.S. are covered. Most of Arizona does not use it. Here’s an article about this:

*  Other areas that don’t use it are Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

*  Indiana was another until 2006.
