Stelvideo Grange Members Donate Their 1000th Dictionary!

The Stelvideo Grange in Ohio donated their 1000th dictionary this year. Participating in The Dictionary Project since 2004, Grange members have recognized the importance of a paperback dictionary. Each year, members talk to the students about their organization and distribute the dictionaries to the third grade classes at Arcanum Elementary School. “There was quite a bit of interaction with the students and they were all very excited to be given their very own dictionary!” said Grange member Lynne Hinshaw. The Grange received “lots of genuine thank-you’s” which you can read below:

Once again we are deeply appreciative of the generosity of both the Stelvideo Grange and the Stelvideo Junior Grange. The dictionaries you supply us with are such important tools for our students. They love using them and reading all the different facts they give us. We teachers look forward to your gift each year. Thank you!
