Rotary Club of Plainview

Words for Thirds 2016-2017 Is In the Books!

 
What a great time it is when you get to give a third grader a dictionary AND teach them how to use it.. That is just what many members of the Rotary club of Plainview did this week. In fact every third grader in Hale County will receive  one  from the club. Approximately  600 dictionaries in all.  Rotarians were able to tell the kids about Rotary, what we do and why we do it. In fact I asked the kids at two different campuses if they have ever heard of POLIO... I am happy to report NONE of them had ever heard of the dreadful disease . We shared the Four Way Test with them and asked them to apply it to there lives.  Success of the project= 600+ lives affected !!!
