This year we donated almost 900 dictionaries to the 3rd graders in 15 different elementary schools from North Babylon, West Babylon, Babylon & West Islip.  Traveling around our community for weeks to conduct 15 presentations was truly a labor of love and we thank all Rotarians who participated.  This year the committee made the difficult decision to end the Dictionary Project and focus efforts next toward supporting literacy in a different way.  While all Rotarians love the nostalgia of a physical dictionary, the truth is that most children, even adults simply use their smart phones to look up the meaning of words they don't know.  The committee is determined to brainstorm a project that better support the literacy of our community moving into the future instead of clinging to the past.  The Dictionary Project was led by Past District Gov. & Past President Frank Siebert for many years and we thank him for his service to the project.
