The Rotary Club of Peoria North has begun distribution of dictionaries to every third-grade student in the Peoria Unified School District.
Distributing dictionaries to PUSD students has been a community service project hosted by the club for more than 10 years. The project has been a joint community service project with The Rotary Club of Peoria, but the Peoria club recently closed, and its members transitioned to the Peoria North club.
The club used a District Designated Fund grant to pay for the project.
Members recently met on a Saturday morning for its annual "stickering" party, whereby each dictionary received a sticker on the inside front cover. The stickers contain the Rotary 4-Way Test and a place for the student to sign their name.
Members of The Rotaract Club of the West Valley joined members of Peoria North to prepare for delivery of the dictionaries.
