Deep River Rotary Club provides Dictionaries to Elementary School Students

Deep River Elementary School 3rd graders are overwhelmed with excitement at receiving their own dictionaries from local Rotary Club of Deep River.

Last month Deep River Rotary Club provided dictionaries to all the 3rd grade students at Deep River Elementary School as part of their involvement with The Dictionary Project.  DR Rotary enjoys providing all students with a dictionary of their own given to them as a gift for use in school and later taken home.  Gail Onofrio of Tri-Town Youth Services and Past President of Deep River Rotary Club is head of the committee for the Dictionary Project.  Gail stated, “The kids are absolutely rapt with the dictionaries as you can see in the photo”.   Rotarian, Jimmy DeLano, was stopped at Deep River Elementary School’s PTO BINGO event by another 3rd grade girl and she told him, ” Thank you for giving me a dictionary, I love it!”.
