Mahaska Community Calendar

CALENDAR CHANGES ARE AROUND THE CORNER!

Everything Mahaska Community Calendar will be undergoing some changes and moving to a new home in 2021.
The Calendar will be redesigned and housed on the Mahaska Chamber & Development Group’s website once their new design is finalized.
We’ll notify subscribers when that site goes live and the changes are in place. Thanks for visiting!

The health and wellness of our community is a top priority, and many listed events may have new guidelines in place for the safety and well-being of area residents. Every attempt is being made to keep your Community Calendar up to date. However, confirmation of an event’s status is recommended. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain season.

  • Daylight Savings Time Ends – A Little History

    Daylight Savings Time Ends – A Little History

    All day
    November 7, 2021

    A Little History: Daylight Saving (also known as Daylight Saving Time and previously known as ‘Fast Time’ in the United States) is the practice of setting the clocks forward one hour from standard time during the warmer parts of the year (usually summer months), and back again in the colder parts (usually fall), in order to make better use of natural daylight so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less.

    In the United States, daylight saving was first introduced in 1918 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into law to support the war effort during World War I. The initiative was generated by Robert Garland, a Pittsburgh industrialist who had encountered the idea in the UK. Today he is often called the “Father of Daylight Saving”. Only seven months, later the seasonal time change was repealed. However, some cities, including Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York, continued to use it until President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially instituted year-round recurring daylight saving in the United States in 1942.

    From 1945 to 1966 there were no uniform rules for Daylight Saving in the US and it caused widespread confusion especially for trains, buses, and the broadcasting industry. As a result, the Uniform Time Act of 1966 was established. It stated that DST would begin on the last Sunday of April and end on the last Sunday of October. However, states still had the ability to be exempt from Daylight Saving by passing a state ordinance. In 1974 and eight months in 1975, the United States Congress extended Daylight Saving to a period of ten months, in hopes to save energy following the 1973 oil embargo. The trial period showed that energy equivalent of 10,000 barrels of oil each day were saved, but Daylight Saving still remained to be controversial. Many complained that the dark winter mornings endangered the lives of children going to school.

    After the energy crisis was over in 1976, the Daylight Saving schedule in the US was revised several times throughout the years. From 1987 to 2006, the United States observed Daylight Saving for about seven months each year. The current schedule was introduced in 2007 and follows the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which extended the period by about one month. Today, Daylight Saving starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

    November 11, 2021

    A Little History: Veterans’ Day is a federal holiday (previously known as Armistice Day) observed annually on November 11, not only in the United States but in many other countries throughout the world. In the United States, it is a day that honors all men and women that have served as military veterans in the United States Armed Forces. Additionally, Veteran’s Day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans Day should not to mistaken with Memorial Day; Veterans’ Day celebrates the service of all United States military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.

    Thanksgiving

    All day
    November 25, 2021

    A Little History: Thanksgiving is a federal holiday, celebrated annually on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Thanksgiving precedes “Black Friday” and is traditionally a holiday to give thanks for the food collected at the end of the harvest season. In November 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford organized a three-day celebratory feast, now remembered as American’s “First Thanksgiving” — although, it is argued that the Pilgrims themselves may not have used the term “Thanksgiving” at the time. Historians also argue that the Pilgrims had their first true thanksgiving in 1623, when they gave thanks for rain that ended a drought. George Washington, the first president of the United States, proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving Day in 1789 and it officially became an annual holiday in 1863.
