Dictionary Project

Daybreak Rotary helps alleviate poverty by collecting and distributing food and volunteering at local missions. Daybreak Rotary Foundation, in conjunction with the Noon Club, has distributed dictionaries in the local area since adopting this project in the 2004-2005 Rotary year.

The picture shows (L to R) Board Member Judy Duvall, President Kumar Krishnan and Rotarian Dayna Hayes giving out dictionaries Jan 17th 2006 at Kane Elementary. Not shown is Rotarian Janice Rey.

It is our goal to encourage children to use dictionaries so that they will be able to use the English language effectively. By providing this tool we assist teachers in making all students active readers, good writers and creative thinkers. Most years we have a personalized name plate in each dictionary courtesy of our Bartlesville High School Interact Club.
