Dictionary Project

Promoting Literacy

In an effort to promote literacy and learning, Rotary funds the purchase of dictionaries for every 3rd grader in the city of Warwick each year. Warwick Rotary members then volunteer to visit all the 3rd grade classrooms in the city and distribute the dictionaries to students for them to write their names in and keep as their own. Volunteers answer the children’s questions and tell them about Rotary and what we do. The dictionaries are always met with smiles and Warwick Rotary receives very sweet handwritten thank you notes from the young dictionary recipients every year.
