RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Boy Scout Jacob Reinhart, at the age of 14, is inviting the community to be part of his project to earn Eagle rank. Reinhart’s Eagle project has been in process since January, and its purpose is to provide a wide variety of activities appropriate for the seniors at Aviara Healthcare Center in Encinitas.
A large part of the Eagle project is to display leadership abilities, to organize a project, recruit helpers and devise a plan to serve others. Jacob learned that games and diversions help the elderly to keep their mental functions at a higher level. As a result, on May 26, at the R. Roger Rowe School’s annual field day/career day, there will be collection boxes in the office, to gather items to supply this project.
Bring any of the following: puzzles, adult coloring books and markers, stuffed animals, word searches, card and board games, nail polish, sculpting clay, water colors and books, origami kits, stress balls, fidget spinners, cozy socks, any art supplies and DVD movies of appropriate subjects for the elderly. All the games and activities will be presented during a completion celebration from 2 to 5 p.m. May 27 at Aviara Health Care Center, 103 Regal Road, Encinitas.
