Dictionaries for Third Grade students
Ten years ago, member Nate Weiser at the young age of 89, started our dictionary project.  He proposed to the membership that we should focus on Literacy.  Membership agreed. We have distributed on average 350 dictionaries each year to every third grade student (private and public schools) in the City of Wayne. This year, our Wayne Fire Fighters joined us in our distribution efforts. Oh, I forgot, Nate is still with us.

Dictionary Project

We just finished delivery of the dictionaries to the 3rd Graders. We delivered 278 dictionaries to Hoover, Roosevelt, Schweitzer, Taft, St. Michael's, St. Joseph's and St. Mary's.

Thanks for everyone's help. If you didn't get a chance to help this year, make it a point to help next year. It is a very rewarding experience.
