It is so easy to get caught up into electronics. Whether it be TV, Computers, the Internet, Smart Phones, Play Station, or the Wii. These electronics are all a fun, entertaining, and a nice way to relax. The problem becomes evident when you find yourself spending two, four, six, or even eight hours a day plugged in to your electronics.
This leaves little time to be 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 a 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.
