Doris Maynard, Treasurer of the Essex Junction Lions Club sent us a letter and pictures of her club’s dictionary project. She wrote in her letter:
Brief history: I was a brand new Lion at my first cabinet meeting back in 2017. Another Lion from a nearby club shared the story of the Dictionary Project and I was “hooked!” Our club voted to take part in your wonderful project, and the rest is history! We provide dictionaries to two local schools – St. Francis Xavier in Winooski, VT and Founders Memorial School in Essex Junction, VT.
Needless to say, the dictionaries are always a huge hit! The teachers look forward to them, as it has become a “tradition” and the students thank our club with adorable thank you notes!
Since starting their dictionary project, the Essex Junction Lions have provided 600 dictionaries to students at the two schools.
