I have several agents who send regular spring forward and fall back cards among other things.  It is just a way to "touch" your client base each year and remind them you are still working.

No I didn't. I received so many reminders about the Spring Forward time change, and I didn't want to be just another reminder. If someone forgets, the worst thing that will happen is they will be late for something. Then they'll remember.
