Rotary Club of Ventura South distributes dictionaries to third-grade students - 02/25/2022

The Rotary Dictionary Project is a nationwide effort to provide young students with their own personal dictionaries. Members of the Ventura South Rotary Club distributed the dictionaries to students at Patola Elementary School and Junipero Serra Elementary School.

Many of the children who received dictionaries come from homes where English is a second language and may not have access to a lot of resources.

Past President Bon Wakam and his wife Dr Irene Wakam distributed well over 250 dictionaries and they say seeing the joy on the children’s faces when they learn the book is theirs to keep makes the project worthwhile.
