WNC Church Takes On Puzzling Challenge

It takes more than patience to sort through thousands of puzzle pieces.

“It is almost impossible,” said James Livingstone.

But the members of Mills River Presbyterian Church have proven they can put together any kind of puzzle.

“I like the challenge,” says church member Judith Gosnell.

Gosnell has been taking part in the church’s annual Puzzlefest since it began five years ago. She helped complete a 24,000 piece jigsaw which is said to be the world’s largest puzzle.

Puzzlefest became a tradition for the church after that.

“This is a little complicated because they are all the same. So it’s definitely trial and error,” said Georgia Sullivan of Wolfpen, N.C.

Just as each piece is different, so is every person who comes to work on it. Organizers say Puzzlefest helps bring the community together members and non-members alike.

There is no one strategy; everyone has their own way of putting the pieces together.

Organizers say that doesn’t really matter because it is more about the sense of community they share as they search for the perfect fit.

Puzzlefest runs through Feb. 3. All ages are welcome from noon to 8 p.m. every weekday and from noon to 6 p.m. on the weekends. The church is located at 10 Presbyterian Church Road in Mills River.
