ROTARY INTERNATIONAL. DISTRICT 6960/AREAS 1 AND 2 PRESS RELEASE
“THIRD GRADE STUDENTS RECEIVE THE GIFT OF WORDS”
Rotary Clubs from Naples, Marco Island, and Immokalee will distribute, personally handing-out, dictionaries in honor of Noah Webster’s Birthday to all 3,487 Collier County Public School 3rd grade students on Friday, October 28th. This very precious gift, a student’s own dictionary, is purchased by the Rotary Clubs each year. This annual Service project of your 11 Collier County Rotary Clubs is just one example of how Rotary gives back to the Community.
The project directed by Marcus P. Zillman, Assistant Governor Area 2 of Rotary District 6960 and Wanda Day, Assistant Governor Area 1 of Rotary District 6960, state “the children love receiving their own book and we feel this is a good tool to assist in their education…Further, many Parents within our Area are struggling to purchase, much needed supplies, such as a Dictionary. And in fact, this is many students’ first book to own.”
Rotary Clubs always welcome Visitors! For more information about how to participate in Rotary Clubs in our Area, please consult the “People, Place, and Things” Section of the Naples Daily News for convenient meeting location times and places in Marco Island, Naples, and Immokalee.
