Rotarians deliver dictionaries to 3rd graders at Stevens Brook School in 2019, the last time access to classrooms was possible.
Project Leader and Rotarian Erin Nelson of Norway Savings Bank-Bridgton is contacting all schools in our area with third graders for a count of how many dictionaries we will order for delivery this fall.  She reminds us, “We continue to seek homeschoolers at a third-grade level so that we can give those children dictionaries as well.  Please contact us at with the number of dictionaries you are requesting.

Our Rotary Club covers the towns of Bridgton, Denmark, Harrison, Naples, and Sweden, but we are willing to provide for homeschoolers anywhere in the Lakes Region. We’ll leave them at a local school, library or community center for pickup.  Let us know.” 

The Dictionary Project is one of the Club’s most important literacy efforts.   Rotarians love this service project!  And, this year, Rotarians will be welcomed back into the classroom to hand out dictionaries to the students in person.
