Wake Forest Unplugged...Get Connected
Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 - 1 p.m.
What do you get when you spend an entire afternoon free from electronic devices that often seem to control us instead of the other way around? The answer: “Wake Forest Unplugged...Get Connected."
Sponsored by the Wake Forest Recreation Advisory Board, "Wake Forest Unplugged...Get Connected" is a rare opportunity for Wake Forest-area residents to "disconnect" from cell phones, PDAs, and computers, and "re-connect" with their community, friends, and family. The campaign gets underway Sunday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m.
Residents and families can participate by simply "unplugging" from their televisions, personal computers, blackberries, phones, and video games for the weekend and instead engaging in healthier, more active pursuits.
Wake Forest Unplugged...Get Connected will culminate with a free concert in beautiful E. Carroll Joyner Park featuring Roy Book Binder. The performance is scheduled from 3:30 - 5:15 p.m., but area residents are encouraged to arrive early, bring a picnic lunch, and take part in an array of planned games and activities, including sack and relay races, egg toss, corn hole, and hula hoop, scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. You're also invited to bring a kite to fly and/or take a stroll along any of the park's numerous trails.
