Screen Break March 18-23


We are challenging families to turn off the TV, tablet, cell phone and video games for one week.To make this easier, local organizations are sponsoring fun, FREE events each day. Choose from special story times, improv classes, chess, and creative arts classes. Get active with your neighbors by playing Gaga ball, building with the Big Blue Blocks or taking a yoga class. Visit local police stations, fire station and see the bees at Village Hall. The week wraps up with a concert featuring Jim Gill at WonderWorks on Saturday afternoon. Disconnect from your device and re-connect with your community this week.

Share your successes, tips and tricks using #ScreenFreeWeek
