Dover Unplugged, a new community-focused event series at St. Dunstan Church, had a successful launch the first week of February. Designed with the entire community in mind, Dover Unplugged aims to provide a chance for community members to unplug and enjoy the company of friends and neighbors.
The series kicked off on Feb. 2 with a screening of "Groundhog Day." Future events, to include speakers on important issues, educational opportunities and service projects, will be held on the first Wednesday or Friday of each month.
“In conversations within our parish and with friends outside of it, we kept hearing the need for people to have more opportunities for face-to-face interactions and time to just simply connect,” the Rev. Sean T. Leonard, Rector, said in an announcement about the new series. “Part of our call is to build bridges into the Dover community, to serve the people of Dover and be a resource to the town, regardless of whether people are church members or not. We are really excited to launch Dover Unplugged and welcome all to join us as we pause, unplug and put down our phones, and simply come together in community.”
Events are held in the fellowship hall at St. Dunstan's, which is located at 18 Springdale Avenue in Dover.
Dover Unplugged events are free to all, with the opportunity for an optional donation. Upcoming events include a presentation on the Syrian refugee crisis by Nadia Alawa of NuDay Syria on Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m.; a service project of packaging meals for people in Puerto Rico with The Outreach Program on Friday, April 6 at 6 p.m.; and a workshop on making Mother's Day flower arrangements on Wednesday, May 2 at 7 p.m.
