Rotary Club of Madison County supports literacy

 The Rotary Club of Madison County has an extensive Literacy Program. Members volunteer to help students who are struggling with reading. The Club received a grant from the Jackson EMC Foundation which they use to fund a program which sends an age-appropriate book each month to every Madison County child registered for the program from birth to age five. They have also used the grant money to fund The Dictionary Project in their county.


Ila Elementary School, one of the schools in the county, sent the Rotary Club some booklets of thank-you notes. A few examples:


`Dear Rotary Club,


Thank you for these awesome dictionaries. I`ll take very good care of it. I`ll sure use it a lot. I`ll probably use it everyday.


Your friend,

`Dear Rotary Club Members,


I wanted to write a note to say thank you for the brand new dictionaries. I like how it has the longest word in the world. I have a question, though. I couldn`t find halloween in it? I also like the fact that we don`t have to get up and down in writing time to get one of those hevey dictionaries. Thank you!


Your friend,


Shelby`


`Dear Rotary Club Members,


I wanted to write a note to thank you for the brand new dictionaries. They`re very big and have words I don`t even know how to spell. In fact it has a Multiplication table, the fifty states, the longest word, and sign language. I will also use it till college. Then I`m going to pass it on to my children.


Your friend,


Ana


P.S. I`m not going to lose the dictionary.`
