One of the annual Crookston Rotary projects is the Literacy Program which provides dictionaries to all third graders in the local elementary schools.

Mary and Don Cavalier, chairpersons for the program say that providing dictionaries to the kids is rewarding and fun, and it’s great to see the excited kids, some whom have never seen a dictionary.

The object of the project is to provide third grade students a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school.

This project is also sponsored by Rotary International and to date over 19 million dictionaries have been donated to children in the United States and internationally.
