Residents at Tavarua Senior Apartments in Carlsbad, CA, ended 2017 with a full calendar of events. They trimmed the tree, enjoyed a meal served to them by our very own Extra Point Youth Group from Carlsbad (see below), enjoyed music and food, and learned about “Living Well,” not only in the new year, but every day.
The Extra Point youth volunteer group was founded recently by Becky Vermillion, a member of the Board of Directors for Carlsbad Youth Baseball, specifically to benefit Tavarua residents. Becky started the group to teach athletes to serve their community off the field, and to do this they will be serving — literally! — a free, hot meal to residents at Tavarua every month! The first meal will be the end of February and is part of EngAGE’s intergenerational programming funded by The Eisner Foundation.
