Dictionary ProjectIt really does take a village . . .
Ann Paulins spearheaded our Education Outreach Dictionary Program.  We provided dictionaries to every 3rd grader in the Athens County Schools.  Jan Garske enlisted the help of our High School Interact club.  Betsy Baringer sent out an invitation to all Rotary members to come participate.
