Unplug and Play week kicks off with family fun at the Laurel Packing House

Families brought their children to the Laurel Packinghouse today to kick off the fourth annual Interior Savings Unplug and Play week.

Unplug and Play encourages families to go screen-free for one week and try new and exciting activities within their homes and community.
