Rotary Club of Fairmont Dictionary Drive
Rotary Club of Fairmont recently conducted its annual dictionary project. Each year the club, with assistance from a District Simplified Grant from Rotary District 7530, purchases nearly 800 new dictionaries and distributes them to every third grader in Marion County. Dictionaries are also given to the Marion County Senior Literacy group.
These dictionaries contain a great deal of additional information – such as presidential biographies, maps around the world, tables of weights and measures and many other important facts for inquiring minds.
This signature project of the Fairmont Rotary Club has been around so long now that every student in Marion County in the third grade or above now has a dictionary provided by Rotary.
Club members are very proud of the fact that many of the Rotarians are very involved in the planning, administration, administration and distribution of these dictionaries.
