Chesterton Lions dictionary project
The Chesterton Lions Club from Chesterton, Indiana, has again completed a very successful distribution of over 538 dictionaries to 3rd-grade students in seven elementary schools in our district. The schools included The Discovery Charter School, Bailly Elementary, Brummitt Elementary, Yost Elementary, Jackson Township Elementary, Liberty Township Elementary, and St. Patrick’s Elementary Schools. The books were handed out by our Lion Mascot "Chester," along with a letter to each parent explaining the goal of the Lions in providing the books. We were warmly received at each schools by principals, teachers, and students, who showered "Chester" with hugs and high-fives after receiving their books.
