Milton Rotarians Deliver Dictionaries  to Local Students

(Milton, Ont.:  2 February 2012) – The Milton Rotary Club's annual literacy project  is now underway and every Milton Grade 3 student will be the beneficiary. Local  Rotarians are currently visiting every public school in Milton and hand  delivering free dictionaries. The campaign is just one of many iniatives  focused on Milton youth.

“We  are honoured and grateful that the Halton school boards have once again decided  to help us help the youth of Milton by granting us the opportunity to present  these dictionaries,” said Rod McLachlan, Rotary Club of Milton public relations  coordinator. "By providing dictionaries to Grade 3 students not only are  we able to promote literacy for these children, but in many cases it directly  helps entire families whose first language is not English."
