LAGRANGE, N.Y. -- Every year, the Rotary Club of LaGrange Sunrise purchases and distributes dictionaries to every third-grader in the Arlington Central School District, which includes five schools and about 500 students.
Dictionaries were distributed Nov. 4 at Beekman Elementary School by Rotarians Leana Cropp and Kristin Fandl.
The dictionary project has been an annual event for the LaGrange Sunrise Rotary Club for several years. Each dictionary contains a label that includes the Rotary’s Four Way Test: "Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Is it beneficial to all concerned?"
The Rotarians who deliver to each school assemble the children and explain how to use them.
The LaGrange Sunrise Rotary Club meets at 7:15 a.m. each Tuesday at the Daily Planet in LaGrangeville. For information about membership, e-mail the club at email@example.com.
