Rotary Club of San Juan Islands shares news about one of their their long-stand­ing edu­ca­tion initiatives.

Mem­bers of the Rotary Club of San Juan Islands recent­ly gift­ed dic­tio­nar­ies to third, fourth, and fifth grade stu­dents through­out San Juan Coun­ty. The pro­gram reached stu­dents at Fri­day Har­bor Ele­men­tary School, Paideia Clas­si­cal School, Grif­fin Bay School, Still­point School, Orcas Island Ele­men­tary School, Salmonber­ry School, OASIS, and Lopez Ele­men­tary School.

It’s a joy to give each stu­dent a book after two years of COVID restrictions.

In the past 18 years of the project, Rotary has gift­ed more than 4,500 dic­tio­nar­ies under the lead­er­ship of its Lit­er­a­cy Chair, Bar­bara Fagan.
