What is Piece Together Parks?

The Ottawa County Parks Foundation announces the return of their annual jigsaw puzzle competition “Piece Together Parks,” benefitting Ottawa County Parks. Teams will go head-to-head in a two-round contest with a 300-piece warm-up round and a main event 500-piece puzzle. This year’s theme is “The Healing Power of Nature.”

Competitors are encouraged to register early, as the event sold out quickly last time, and it is limited to only 35 teams. A $50 donation per team will register the entire team, which can consist of 2 to 6 people.

Parks Foundation Board member and co-organizer Bobbi Jones Sabine added “Team names, themes, and even costumes are encouraged. Last time one team called themselves ‘The Nut House’ and wore squirrel tails and hats. Several teams sported matching T-shirts.”

All teams will construct the same puzzles. The first team to complete their puzzle OR the team with the highest percent complete at the end of the competition period wins. Prizes will be awarded to the winners. There will be a puzzle swap table for people to exchange their old puzzles for different ones. The Eagles will provide beverage services. This event is co-sponsored by the Ottawa County Parks Foundation and Grand Haven Eagles.
