At each noon meeting, the members of the Bentonville-Bella Vista Altrusa club recite this prayer before beginning the meeting:
The Dictionary Project, a non-profit national organization, provides public and private school students their own personal dictionary for use at their home or at school.
More than 1,000 children in Cullman will receive a dictionary thanks to the generosity of the Cullman Elks Lodge, which participates in the Dictionary Project annually.
Harold Johnson and Sharon Ferguson of the Bessemer Elks Lodge #721 presented third-grade students at Abrams Elementary with new dictionaries on Sept. 9.
Club's gift of dictionaries brings happiness to city third graders
