The annual dictionary project organized by Grants Fire & Rescue has begun with the start of the new school year. Fire chief Robert Hays distributed 106 dictionaries to third graders at Mesa View Elementary School. This is his 8th year of participation, beginning with a youth program participation with the local Elks lodge, and continuing when he went to work for CH2M Hill and now with the local fire department. They will be surpassing 5,000 books in distribution this year.
On Thursday, September 15, third graders at Milan Elementary School received 72 dictionaries, and more deliveries are planned!
