Unplug and Eat Ice Cream: Bedford Unplugged Ice Cream Social

bedford-ice-creamBetween homework, client meetings, deadlines, keeping up with friends and family, keeping the kids occupied while you're doing all this, and sometimes just taking a break, it's easy to see how our lives have become wrapped up in technology and our electronic devices. They serve a real need, but let's face it -- sometimes it's just habit, and a habit that can keep us from enjoying and appreciating the time we do have together.

So, we've put down our smart phones and tablets, and closed our laptops -- now what?? Coming to the rescue is "Bedford Unplugged," an annual community initiative to encourage families to pull the plug on electronic distractions, disconnect from overly busy schedules, and connect with each other through activities with family and friends. Check out their suggested calendar of activities, and I hope to see you at one of my favorites this Friday -- the ice cream social!

Bedford Unplugged Ice Cream Social: Fri Nov 15th, 5-8pm Shawsheen Room, Town Center Building, 12 Mudge Way, Bedford, MA

As part of Bedford Unplugged month, Bedford Family Connection and Bedford Youth and Family Services are co-sponsoring an ice cream social featuring Bedford Farms ice cream. Drop in and make your own sundae with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, jimmies and more! $2.00 per sundae. Give the kids an early dinner and join us for a Friday night ice cream treat!

Yummmm -- I'm shutting down my computer as we speak....
