The Georgetown County Dictionary Project is a cooperative effort of the Rotary clubs of Andrews, Georgetown Breakfast, Georgetown Lunch, Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island that was begun by Alan Walters in 1999. To date, more than 10,000 dictionaries have been distributed to students in Georgetown County.
