Rotary gives dictionaries to students
Gresham Rotary Club members recently visited Harold Oliver Elementary School where they distributed dictionaries to students.
It was part of the club's effort to put a dictionary in the hands of each third-grader in the Centennial School District.

The Rotarians said they felt a bit like rock stars when students asked them to autograph their dictionaries.
The dictionary distribution is part of Rotary International's support for literacy projects around the world.
