Lions Clubs donate dictionaries

A joint effort between the Kenyon and Wanamingo Lions Clubs has brought new dictionaries to the fourth-grade classrooms at Kenyon-Wanamingo elementary school. Kenyon Lion Dennis Monroe initiated the project and both clubs made a donation to The Dictionary Project (see www.dictionaryproject.org for more information) and requested a certain amount of dictionaries in return. This is the first time either Lions Club has worked with The Dictionary Project. Mary Smith noted that the clubs want their community members to know where their money goes when they make donations and support Lions fundraisers.

Smith said she received an email from 4th grade teacher Kevin Anderson thanking them again for the dictionaries. He said the students were very excited to receive them and also made comments about the maps, states, Periodic Table of Elements and multiplication table which are included in the dictionaries.
