On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the City of Smyrna, Smyrna Veterans Committee, Veterans Memorial Association of Smyrna, GA Inc., American Legion Post 160, and Smyrna Rotary Club invite you to attend the 2014 Veterans Day Ceremony honoring all who served our great nation.


“Today, our Nation comes together to honor our veterans and commemorate the legacy of profound service and sacrifice they have upheld in pursuit of a more perfect Union. Through their steadfast defense of America’s ideals, our service members have ensured our country still stands strong, our founding principles still shine, and nations around the world know the blessings of freedom. As we offer our sincere appreciation and respect to our veterans, to their families, to those who are still in harm’s way, and to those we have laid to rest, let us rededicate ourselves to serving them as well as they have served the United States of America.

On Veterans Day, we pay tribute to our veterans, to the fallen, and to their families. To honor their contributions to our Nation, let us strive with renewed determination to keep the promises we have made to all who have answered our country’s call. As we fulfill our obligations to them, we keep faith with the patriots who have risked their lives to preserve our Union, and with the ideals of service and sacrifice upon which our Republic was founded.” – President Obama

The ceremony is scheduled to take place at the 20th Century Veterans Memorial at the corner of Bank and King Streets, near City Hall (use 2800 King Street, Smyrna Ga 30080 for internet directions).

Smyrna Daylight Savings Ends Tomorrow

November 2, 2014

For most Americans, daylight saving time ends for 2014 at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 2nd, when most states fall back to standard time. Time will spring forward again on March 8, 2015, when daylight saving time resumes.

The federal government doesn’t require U.S. states or territories to observe daylight saving time, which is why residents of Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands won’t need to turn back their clocks this weekend.

While most of us plan to embrace that blessed hour (by sleeping right through it), the time change can throw a few people for a loop. The concept of daylight saving time was originally suggested by Benjamin Franklin, but it was not adopted until several countries did so during World War I as a means of better using more daylight hours, so that the resources used to create artificial lighting could be used for the war.

To avoid having your body clock disrupted, even if you can’t sleep an extra hour, stay in bed with your eyes closed. If you want to get up, don’t go outdoors. Draw the blinds and don’t have lots of sunlight come into house. This could help your body adjust to the time change.
