Reading Power

A third-grade teacher at Happy Hollow School in Wayland last Friday shows Sarah and Samantha one of the 240 dictionaries the Natick Elks donated to two schools in Wayland, the Happy Hollow and the Claypit Hill schools. The Massachusetts Elks so far this year have given out over 30,000 dictionaries. Since joining this program, in the school year 2004 – 2005, the Elks have distributed almost 120,000 dictionaries. Funds for this project were donated to the Natick Elks from last year`s state president, William E. Reilly III, from the Norwood Lodge. Representing the Elks at last Friday`s event were Susan Muldoon, Lodge chairperson, Tom Muldoon, past district deputy, and John W. Capitao, past state president, state chairman of the Dictionary Project.
