Lincoln Rotarians recently presented 100 third-graders in Lincoln Crossing Elementary School with new McMillan Dictionaries for Children. Each one of these young children is introduced to the dictionary in the third-grade curriculum and the presentation of these books helps aid in this important instruction. The program of dictionary presentation has grown over the past few years as part of Rotary International. These books are provided by individual Rotary Clubs to schools in the area of the club's location. These dictionaries are the most up-to-date available with more than 35,000 entries. The books are excellent learning tools for these 8- and 9-year-olds. Rotary President Bill Smith and six members of the Lincoln Club were on hand to assist in distributing the books. School Principal Kevin Kurtz and the third-grade teachers and students showed their appreciation with their smiles, cheers and comments. Each class presented Smith with over-sized handmade thank you cards. Lincoln Rotary has a reputation of being very supportive to community needs and they are continuing to find more areas to be of service. Service above Self is the motto of Rotary International and the local club exemplifies this in the many ways the group reaches out to the community and those with needs.
