Kudos to the Kiwanis for their dictionary project

Merrillville Kiwanis clubs were recently honored at the Merrillville School Board meeting for their ongoing Dictionary Project in the schools. This is the fifth year the clubs have held fundraisers and gathered donations to sponsor the program, which involves presenting a personalized dictionary to every third-grader in the Merrillville Community School Corp. and a local parochial school.

More than 800 students enjoy receiving the books to learn of planetary systems, sign language, the history of the U.S. presidents, etc. in addition to the dictionary spellings.
