We are working on the Dictionary project. Just some quick numbers. Since this project started, 24 million Dictionaries have been distributed throughout the school systems in the United States alone. 12 million of them have been distributed through Rotary Clubs. Over 90,000 will be distributed in New Jersey alone this year by Rotary Clubs. We are a part of those numbers.
People ask, "Why are Dictionaries so important?" According to a study, in order to be successful and fluent in language, the average person should have a vocabulary of around 20,000 words. Sounds like a lot, but it also make sense that you not only need to be able to spell a word, you should also know what it means. Hence, Dictionaries! Thanks to all of the Club members who helped raise the funds to purchase these Dictionaries and all those who are working on getting these important books to the third graders in our school system. You are the best!
