Take a break mid-week and work on a community jigsaw puzzle with other adults. We’ll be using the website jigsawpuzzles.io to work on the same puzzle together as a group, plus you can relax and chat with folks over audio chat. It’s a safe way to socialize and decompress!

 

You'll need a computer or tablet that can load jigsawpuzzles.io in order to participate, as well as a smartphone or a computer with a microphone to use voice chat. This event will be focused on audio interaction, so video is unnecessary and webcams aren't needed.
