Winona Rotary members recently donated nearly 500 student dictionaries to all third-grade students in Winona County and Rushford-Peterson schools for Winona Rotary’s 13th annual Dictionary Project. Students were excited to receive their very own dictionary to keep! Club members showed the students how to use the dictionaries, which have several additional features including world and state maps, country facts, the Declaration of Independence, a civics lesson, and conversion tables for weights and measurements. Winona Rotary has donated a total of nearly 6,700 dictionaries to third-grade students in Winona County and Rushford-Peterson since the project’s inception.
