People spend more time with their electronics than they do with each other. Have you dined out and seen couples having dinner, each on their cell phone, paying little attention to each other? Do you think kids are as engaged in outdoors play as they were ten years ago? Do you know your neighbor four houses down? It is becoming increasingly more important for alternative activities and opportunities to be presented to the community. One very good source for just that is Rockford Public Schools “Community Services”. You can check out everything they have available at www.rpssignmeup.com. They have events, classes and opportunities for people of all ages. Youth and adult enrichment as well as Luncheons and Clubs for Seniors. Subjects range from finances to foraging for adults and sports to art for youth. While there are some cost to attending these classes and events, the value is very high. Not only do you learn a new skill or practice old ones and just plain have fun, you also meet new friends. So step away from technology this Spring a little bit and discover the many opportunities available at your local Community Enrichment Center. You might just find you don’t miss your computer all that much.
