Thomas Lee invented the 4 legged chair in the early 1900s as a solution to the lack of outdoor seating while on holiday with his family members in the Adirondack Mountains of the New York State. The original version was produced from just one particular board of wood, and was cut into eleven sections. Patented by Thomas Lees carpenter associate Harry Bunnell in 1905, the Adirondack is also identified as the Westport plank chair, but was only made by Bunnell in dark green and brown shades.

Created to sit parallel to the steep mountains that Thomas Lee and his loved ones had been residing on, the Adirondack chairs seat and back each have a slight slant which when employed on flat ground make for a extremely relaxing experience. The style also incorporates a panelled back that is wider at the best and smaller at the bottom, which supports the shoulders. The back is usually in a fan shape, rounded at the best. Also, the chair has very a significant seat that will very easily enable space for a cushion. When sitting in the chair, the knees sit greater than the hips (significantly like a deck chair), so for prolonged sitting, it could be more comfy to sit on a slope. The wide set arms with a significant flat surface provide wonderful assistance for the arms and let the user to location drinks and other objects on them while sitting.

Adirondack chairs can also be crafted into numerous other diverse types of seating. For example, the Adirondack style could be incorporated into a really like seat (two seater bench), a rocking chair and a swing seat. They make the best summer seat at picnics and parties. Such versatility of a style of garden furnishings permits these who are interested to match all their furniture together for a much more aesthetically pleasing garden. Like a lot of other outdoor furniture, Adirondack chairs are crafted from Cedar wood, which is a soft wood capable of withstanding most weather circumstances. In this respect, it is feasible to match all of your garden furnishings so that none of it looks out of spot. Also, it is attainable to see the inspiration for certain camping chairs in the Adirondack style. Their seats are set low to the ground with really wide arm rests, which feature handy net cup holders. This demonstrates their use whilst travelling or in a place with restricted space or availability for tables.

In April 2004, the Peace Corps celebrated its 10th anniversary of service in Zambia. Following the formalization of a country agreement in 1993, Peace Corps/Zambia opened its program in 1994 with a first group of water and sanitation/hygiene education Volunteers. In 1996, the program expanded to include projects in community action for health and rural aquaculture. The project expanded again in 2001 to encompass an income, food, and environmental project. In 2003, a new education project was launched and a fifth program is underway. Using emergency HIV/AIDS funding, a separate HIV/AIDS project will begin in the summer of 2005.
+
 
+
Since the first Peace Corps Volunteers arrived 1994, approximately 600 Volunteers have served in Zambia, which is now one of the larger Peace Corps programs in Africa.  Volunteers live and work in eight of Zambia’s nine provinces.
+
 
+
 
+
====Rural Aquaculture ====
+
 
+
Volunteers are helping the Department of Fisheries to develop fish-farming projects that will improve livelihoods in rural communities. After determining rural farmers’ needs and resources, Volunteers provide technical assistance in establishing dams, furrows, fishponds, and integrated agriculture. In addition to providing an excellent source of nutrition for rural families, surplus fish and agricultural products are sold to provide substantial supplementary income. Volunteers provide training in small agribusiness skills to assist farmers in applying a business orientation toward their farming activities. Volunteers also help build the organizational development capacity of fish farming associations.
+
 
+
====Learning at Taonga Market (Education) ====
+
 
+
One new Peace Corps’ education project builds on the initial success of a national radio education program called “Learning at Taonga Market.” This interactive program, produced by the Ministry of Education, is broadcast over the national radio station and covers the primary school curriculum in a fun, engaging way. The program helps deliver education that does not require a trained teacher or a school building, allowing for improved access to basic education in Zambia’s rural areas.
+
 
+
In early 2007 this program was renamed as the RED (Rural Education) program.  The name change reflected a broadening of scope for efforts made by RED volunteers, emphasizing various means of training counterparts in rural areas rather than focusing solely on the LTM IRI (distance learning via radio) approach.
+
 
+
====Linking Income Food and Environment ====
+
 
+
In 2000, the Zambian Wildlife Authority invited Peace Corps/Zambia to join a new environmental initiative to help communities living near national parks gain an economic stake and a voice in managing protected areas. Working in six provinces, Volunteers help strengthen the civil participation of rural communities in natural resource management and economic resource allocation. Volunteers have assisted community groups in developing the decision-making skills necessary for this new responsibility and have provided education on environmental and conservation issues.  Volunteers have also worked in schools to enhance environmental education curricula and deliver lessons to pupils in schools near national parks. Other significant Volunteer activities address food insecurity and livelihood diversification of these communities, thus reducing pressure on parks’ resources.
+
 
+
 
+
====Community Action for Health ====
+
 
+
Volunteers work with counterparts from Rural Health Centers to build and strengthen the capacity of neighborhood health committees to address health problems at the village level.  Volunteers share leadership and organizational skills and strengthen communication skills. They also facilitate better links among the committees, the Rural Health Center, and district health management boards. Additionally, Volunteers help communities implement cost-effective, sustainable health interventions.
+
 
+
====HIV/AIDS ====
+
 
+
Using HIV/AIDS emergency plan funding, Peace Corps/Zambia is developing and implementing a new project focusing on HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Twenty trainees will be invited to join the LIFE training program in May 2005, becoming the first full-cycle Volunteers to participate in this project. The program, delivered at the district and community levels, focuses on awareness, education, prevention, and nutrition as a means of reversing the tide in the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
