On Sunday November 2nd, a strong showing of Interact Students (shown below)
together with Rotary member-volunteers  Alan Boyd, Brandon Elliot, Ann Paulins, Karen Vedder, Keith Wasserman (and wife Darlene) labeled 600 dictionaries for delivery to all Athens County 3rd graders. Labeling was completed in a record 17 minutes! Thanks to the Interact Students for their tremendous assistance – including carrying boxes of dictionaries to the cars of Rotarians who are making the deliveries.
 
Deliveries will occur throughout the month of November, most in collaboration with faculty liaisons in The Patton College Professional Development Partnership program.  Rotarians delivering dictionaries are:
Brandon Elliot (Alexander)
Alan Boyd (East)
Karen Vedder (Morrison-Gordon)
Ann Paulins (The Plains)
Keith Wasserman (West)
Jan Garske (Nelsonville-York)
Jodie Harris (Amesville & Coolville)
Sandy Nesbit (Trimble)
 
Thanks are extended to all who participated in this project.
