Dictionaries distributed to NW Tucson third graders

Third graders at four northwest-side elementary schools received dictionaries from Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge No. 2815.

Dictionaries that include the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were distributed last month to 360 third graders at Wilson, Copper Creek, Mesa Verde and Immaculate Heart elementary schools as part of the Elks’ Dictionary Project.

Project chairman Roger Mastro hand-delivered the dictionaries with fellow Elks Richard Esparza, Vic Garcia, Lee Cook and Exalted Ruler Larry Megahan.
