FANCHER – Tonight is the time when we turn our clocks back an hour. That means an extra hour of sleep. It also means it will be dark out sooner in late afternoon beginning on Sunday.

Officially, the clock change comes at 2 a.m. Sunday. Firefighters say tonight is a good time to make sure the batteries are fresh in smoke alarms.

The photo above shows the clock on the “Fancher Curve” along Route 31 between Albion and Holley.

In August 1949, the Fancher community gathered to dedicate a monument on the triangle along the Route 31. The memorial honors 10 soldiers from the Fancher community who died in World War II.

The monument includes a plaque noting the ultimate sacrifice by John Christopher, Joseph Christopher, Cosmo Coccitti, John Kettle, Jr., Leonard Licursi, Martin Licursi, Richard Merritt, Camille Nenni, Floyd Valentine and Richard Vendetta.
