Boy Scout Troop 99 assisted with the assembly of the tables. An estimated 2,700 citizens are considered physically disabled in Putnam County, the majority of whom are between the ages of 21 and 64. Although Greencastle's park facilities have improved in terms of ramps and restroom facilities, picnic areas for wheelchair bound citizens have been limited. Now all citizens of Putnam and surrounding counties can enjoy family reunions, organization functions and meetings, as well as everyday usage of shelter facilities and picnic areas.
