Ruth Nelson, Ohop Grange # 812, Eatonville, WA
I believe this is the 7th year our Grange has donated a dictionary to each 3rd grade student, and their teachers, in the Eatonville School District. By now most of the students know we are coming with the dictionaries and are really excited to get them. I, personally, have had parents and grandparents come to me later at different functions and thank our Grange for doing this. They say their children are so happy to have their own dictionary that they can keep forever if they want. The teachers are also waiting for us and when we present the dictionaries they tell the students they will be having a lesson from these books within a few days. This is such a worthwhile project and one that our members feel we should continue as long as possible.
