Putting the Puzzle Together . . . Together.

550_166022240202663_623814892_n.jpgOpening for October 2012 District Meeting

At a recent District meeting puzzle pieces and ‘tags’ were distributed to each participant.  Each person was asked to place the ‘tag’ on the puzzle piece.

These pieces represent the jobs and tasks needed in scouting to help make a district strong…..things like district operating committees, activities, leadership positions, paid staffers, volunteers, to name just a few.

All of these pieces are needed to make the whole successful.  Each person was asked to bring their puzzle piece to the center of the room and let’s build a strong district.

After all the puzzle pieces were connected, it was noted that not all the pieces were oriented the same way…….not all the pieces were the same color…..not all the pieces were surrounded by other pieces.

Some pieces form the border….these pieces the help hold us in and form us………some pieces connect to multiple functions and activities using their talents in various ways……some are connected to just one or two other pieces using their specialized talents to make those functions a success.

All the pieces play important roles….no piece is more important than another…….but all pieces are important to the youth that we serve and to the programs we produce.   The more pieces we connect to our puzzle the stronger our district becomes.
