Daylight Saving Time

As Spring and Summer approach not only do we get to look forward to warmer temperatures we also have more hours of sunshine!

Spring forward one hour by setting your clocks ahead this coming Sunday March 8, 2009.

Benjamin Franklin first suggested Daylight Saving Time in 1784, but it was not until World War I, in 1916, when it was adopted and set into place. It was initiated in order to conserve energy by having more daylight hours to work and then people would not have to use as much electricity or fuels to light their homes in the evenings.

About Lisa Marchant

I enjoy assisting people in finding their new home or investment property. I want to be their trusted advisor when it comes to learning more about the process of buying, selling and relocating to our area. It is my number one goal to provide exceptional service to everyone I work with. Having lived in Deaver and Cowley Wyoming since childhood I am very knowledgeable about the area and enjoy sharing that knowledge with those making Wyoming their new home. I am a full time real estate agent working for Johnson Home and Land. I joined the staff at Johnson Home and Land in March of 2003, beginning as the office secretary and personal assistant. I got my real estate license in February of 2005. I am a member of the Northwest Wyoming Board of REALTORS, Wyoming Association of REALTORS, the National Association of REALTORS, and locally a board member of the Lovell Chamber of Commerce.

    I truly dislike the time changes and wish we would pick one and stick to it. Thanks for the reminder to switch the clocks! 🙂
