LAKE TWP. – Images of a winding river, a pond with water lilies and a hopscotch pattern are part of a sensory walk created by 16-year-old Ian Palinkas for Love Our Community’s warehouse. 

“A sensory walk is a path someone can take to help them get their energy out or help them refocus,” he said.

Palinkas, a Lake Middle High School student and member of Boy Scout Troop 330 of Green Valley United Methodist Church, recently installed the printed vinyl flooring that comprises the sensory walk. It’s located in the children’s area at Love Our Community’s thrift store and warehouse, 1236 Sunnyside St. SW.

Ian Palinkas, a Lake Middle High School student and member of Boy Scout Troop 330 of Green Valley United Methodist Church, and his helpers installed printed vinyl flooring as a sensory walk at the Love Our Community's thrift store and warehouse, 1236 Sunnyside St. SW.

Palinkas began his Eagle Scout project in 2019 and faced delays caused by the pandemic. Eagle Scout is the highest rank achievable in the Boy Scouts.

“That basically stopped the whole process because all of the companies and stuff that we were working with kind of got shut down during that time,” he said.

Another obstacle was the uncertainty surrounding Love Our Community’s location.
