Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend.

DST ends Sunday, Nov. 4, so you should set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. The change officially comes at 2 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in November.

DST started March 11, 2018. It will restart on March 10, 2019.

Sunday’s change means sunrise and sunset will be about one hour earlier on Nov. 4 than it was the day before, meaning there will be more daylight in the morning hours.

M4A is needing to reorder our Project Life Connect red pouches. AARP has graciously partnered with us to provide financial support AND M4A is seeking one more financial sponsor. This is a wonderful tool for individuals to have in case of an emergency AND also a great way for you to get your company/organization logo and information out to thousands of consumers!

In recognition of National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month AND National Family Caregiver Month, M4A is working with our partners to launch a special campaign during the month of November. We are working with a few key partners and the University of Montevallo to create three short videos this month.  We are excited to share them as soon as they become available.
