Jackson Elks # 466 donated dictionaries to students at Sts. Peter & Paul School in Wellston. Secretary Carl Dobbins said the Elks selected “The Dictionary Project” as one of their community service programs this year.
“The Dictionary Project” was founded by Mrs. Mary French of Charleston, SC. The sole mission of the non-profit 501(c)3 organization is to supply dictionaries to all third grade students in the United States. At this time, over fourteen million dictionaries have been supplied. The BPO Elks became involved in 2004. The local Elks are very supportive of this worthwhile project.
