Friends Of Music to hold jigsaw puzzle competition

By Staff | Feb 12, 2016

The Friends of Music is sponsoring a “First Annual Puzzle Mania” jigsaw puzzle competition in Shepherdstown the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 28.

The event will be a fundraiser for the Friends and its Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra.

It will be held from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Shepherdstown Community Club, at 102 East German Street.

The jigsaw puzzle competition will consist of 20 teams of four persons each. Each team will start with the same 500-piece puzzle and vie with all the other teams to complete the puzzle first. The winning team will be honored with a trophy.

Participants must recruit their own four-person teams from friends, neighbors or family members. The fee to participate will be $100 per team. Organizations and businesses may sponsor teams if they wish.

This is intended as a fun, light-hearted event. It will be family-friendly, and children 10 and older will be welcome to join as team members.

Light refreshments will be served

Tickets can be purchased on the Friends of Music website at www.friendswv.org.
