With the help and support of local financial institutions, the Spanish Fork Rotary donated almost 2000 dictionaries to each third-grade classroom in 21 schools in Nebo School District.

rRotaries throughout the United States are involved with “The Dictionary Project” which, to date, has donated over 28 million dictionaries to students throughout the United States since the program’s inception in 1995. The goal of the project is to “assist all students to become good writers, active readers and creative thinkers by providing students a gift of their own personal dictionary.”

The Spanish Fork Rotary has been involved with The Dictionary Project since the early 2000’s. Each October, Rotary members gather donations from local businesses and sponsors and deliver the dictionaries to third-grade classrooms.

Julianne Roberts of Larson & Company and a rotary member was in charge of the project. She said it’s an event that brings the businesses and community together.

“I love how willing the businesses are,” Ms. Roberts said. “They are very eager to help the kids in the district and participate in this project. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this every year.”

Lorraine Dedrickson, Operations Manager of the Bank of American Fork in Spanish Fork and the Spanish Fork Rotary President, said the students get very excited about their dictionaries.

r

“It’s their own book that they can take home,” Ms. Dedrickson said. “We get the kids all together and show them how to look up words and how to use the dictionaries and they get very excited. Some years we do a spelling bee with them. I love seeing their responses.”

r

Thank you to all business sponsors and the Spanish Fork Rotary for your contributions to our third-grade students!
