Ambassador Girl Scout Leslie Yarde completed work for the Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting.

Yarde coordinated the construction of 18 picnic tables for the Izaak Walton League of Huntington County.

Tables were funded in part by donations from the Huntington County Community Foundation and Girl Scout troops of Huntington and Wabash counties.

Tables were constructed in two sizes, for youth and adult usage.

Yarde also designed four tables to meet the American Disabilities Act guidelines to provide tables for those with disabilities.

Yarde says, "Everyone should be able to enjoy the great outdoors."
