The Rotary Club of Ashland, VA, recently donated 550 dictionaries to students at John Gandy and Elmont Elementary Schools. Rotarians provided dictionaries to all third graders, but also extended the project to fourth and fifth graders who had not been sponsored in the past few years.
Heather Ostrander, an Ashland Rotarian, had this to say about the project:
“The response from the students was heartwarming! We have received thank you cards, personally crafted, and overwhelming response from the educators. Thank you for all you do to make this all happen. All the Rotarians who participated were touched by the reaction.”
