Lakeview Rotary distributes dictionaries and history books

The Lakeview Rotary Club has been donating dictionaries to third graders since 2004. In addition, each child receives a copy of the book, Noah Webster: Father of the American Dictionary, by Stanley Wonderley. Mr. Wonderley is a member of the Lakeview Rotary Club and has made this book an interesting history of the time in which Noah Webster lived as well as an inspiring story of Webster’s life and work.

The Rotarians have received many thank-you letters from children over the years. Here are some of them:


"Dear Rotary Club,

Thank you for the dictionary. I like what it shows on the back of the dictionary. The Noah Webster book was cool too. I use The dictionary for my writing prompts. I like to look up words that I don’t know. I wish I had a feather to print my name and other things.

Your friend,

Jose"


"Dear Rotary Club,

Sincerely,

Cameron"


"Dear Rotary Club,

Thank you for the dictionary. It is very helpful. I have used it a lot. I still don’t know what that word you show us is. Noah Webster was amazing. I’m looking forward to making ink, but I don’t have all of the ingredients. Noah Webster is the greatest book I have ever read.

Sincerely,

Anabella"
