Monterey Peninsula Rotary Club returns to schools with dictionaries

 The Monterey Peninsula Sunrise Rotary Club recently completed distributing dictionaries to the third graders of both Martin Luther King Elementary and International School of Monterey. A total of 99 dictionaries were distributed with the remaining given to each school for their use at their libraries.

Each child was called up to get his/her dictionary, and we were so fortunate to see the smiling faces and gratitude in each child`s face. Best of all, they get to put their names on the inside cover of their very own dictionary. As one of our Rotarians after one of the ceremonies said appropriately, `If that doesn`t put a smile on your face, nothing else will.`

The distributions took place on Thursday, Feb 18, 2010 and Thursday, Feb 25, 2010. Mary, your dream lives on and we will continue to support this endeavor annually.

Thanks for what you do,


Joe Mateo
