Third-grade students in Algoma schools recently received a valuable learning resource from the Algoma Lions Club. As part of the non-profit organization, The Dictionary Project, 65 students received a free dictionary. Lions Club member Rita Schiessner says the books help encourage good writers and active readers. She says the program is well-received every year in the schools.
Schiessner says the Algoma Lions Club has been involved in the dictionary program for the past five years distributing more than 450 books to the third-graders.
