Rotarians Chuck McHugh (left), Jerry Bauman (center), Jeff Hunsicker (right) and Leora Summers (photographer) made the club's first distribution of dictionaries to 3rd graders in Notus, Parma and Wilder on October 23rd as a part of Caldwell Rotary's commitment to literacy and supporting our area's youth.
When the distribution is completed, about 1,400 third graders from 18 area schools in Canyon and Owyhee Counties will receive their own copy to keep. The kids were so excited to receive such a comprehensive book that not only included definitions, but also information about many topics of interest including sign language, solar system information, U.S. President biographies, times tables and others. 
Chuck could use some help this Tuesday, October 30th, delivering dictionaries: West Canyon (10ish—Call, text or email him for confirmation on this one), Homedale at 12:30pm, and Marsing at 2:30pm. If you are able to help contact him by phone: (208) 989-4029 or e-mail him at:
