Rotary Club of Ojai West salutes Richard MacArthur for his dictionary project. In sixteen years, Richard McArthur and the Rotary Club of Ojai West have distributed over five thousand student dictionaries to third graders in the Ojai Valley.  The dictionary is a special edition with reference material on geography, American history, and weights and measures.  Students are encouraged to write their name in the book and keep it with them throughout their education.  


Mr. McArthur is owner of Ojai Lumber and very active in the community.  McArthur was presented with a certificate of outstanding contribution from club President Steve Frank.
