It is so easy to get caught up into electronics --- TV, computers, Internet, Gameboy, and Nintendo are fun, entertaining, and a nice way to relax. The problem becomes when you find yourself spending 2, 4, 6 or even 8 hours a day plugged in…and little time is devoted to interacting with family and friends or simply engaging in a quiet activity such as reading or walking.
Needham Unplugged is an awareness campaign to remind Needham families and residents to “unplug their electronics” and “plug into” each other. It is a reminder that there is more to life than what is on the other side of a plug. Watch for announcements about activities that do NOT require electricity and that emphasize person-to-person interaction and health. The highlight of the program is no-homework, no-sports, and no-activities night for Needham Public School Students. In addition, there will be no town-related meetings and virtually no community and religious meetings held on that night.
