If youíre the type of person who can talk on the phone, scarf a slice of pizza, log a meeting into your BlackBerry and Instant Message an update to your boss - all at the same time - the Needham Youth Commission wants you to chill out.
Thursday, March 1 begins the Youth Commissionís month-long Needham Unplugged program designed to encourage families to shut off the television and other electronica and spend time together. The program culminates on March 22, when all the town organizations are encouraged to take the night off.
The Youth Commission is encouraging town offices, civic and sports groups and religious organizations not to meet that night and students in the entire district will not be assigned homework.
All month long, Needham residents can attend family activities, including Yoga, hip hop and swimming classes at the YMCA. The Youth Commission is offering tips for family get-togethers, such as playing card games, making sundaes, and having breakfast for dinner.
The activities are available on the Youth Commissionís website.
