Hard cover American Heritage dictionaries were delivered by Silverdale Rotarians to almost 200 enthusiastic 3rd graders at Silverdale, Green Mountain, and Silver Ridge Elementary Schools on February 21-22. Here are some highlights:
 
  • Rotarian Erin Shannon, whose son is in 3rd grade at Silver Ridge Elementary, was in his classroom doing the presentation and gave him his very own dictionary! 
     
  • Quote from a 4th grader at Silverdale Elementary when asked if he used his dictionary: “Yes, I take it with me, and I look stuff up!”

Thanks to our generous sponsors and the community who purchased Duck Tickets for the 2018 Silverdale Rotary Duck Race, our Club will be delivering over 400 dictionaries to a total of six CK elementary school 3rd graders. 
 
Note that the East Bremerton Rotary Club does the same for the other six elementary schools in CKSD.  Rotarians – People of Action!
