The Rotary Club of Taft started a tradition in 2006 of donating a dictionary to every local 3rd grade student in our area.  We have a total of 8 schools that we serve.  Each year we donate around 350 books…..which means we have donated approximately 5,600 dictionaries during the life of this project!! 

We involve our entire club in this project by putting stickers of the 4-Way Test on the inside cover of each dictionary and distributing the books to each school.  When we donate the dictionaries, we put on a mini assembly explaining what our club does for the community and going over the 4-Way Test.  The kids have fun learning about words from our motto and it is a joy seeing their faces light up!
