Willmar Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks participate in The Dictionary Project at schools

Willmar Elks Lodge #952 purchased and distributed dictionaries to the 3rd grade students at the Renville County West (RCW) and BOLD School Districts.


This presentation was made possible with the joint efforts of The Dictionary Project (thedictionaryproject.com) through which the dictionaries were purchased. The goal of this program is to assist 3rd graders in completing the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers by providing students with their own personal dictionary


94 students received their very own Student Dictionary, a 524-page reference book including 143 pages of Americanism subjects such as: the U.S. Presidents, Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. Flag, as well as information on each of the 50 United States.
