Needham Unplugged kicks off on March 1 and is a month-long awareness campaign led by Needham Youth Services 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.

The highlight of this year’s program will be a no-homework, no-sports and no activities night for Needham Public Schools students on March 15. In addition, there will be no town-related meetings and virtually no community, school, or religious meetings held on that night. Parents can play their part on March 15 by getting home from work no later than dinnertime, canceling/rescheduling any night meetings, and thinking about making this night a special time for the entire family.
Below are a few other special “unplugged” items of interest:
