The Arlington Kiwanis Club — in conjunction with Friends of the Arlington Library and the nonprofit Dictionary Project — recently donated dictionaries to third-graders in Arlington, Darrington and Lakewood school districts. The dictionaries are for the students to keep.
“Kids are the focus of Arlington Kiwanis,” said member Sherri Phelps. “We want to do everything we can to give kids a leg up on their education and these dictionaries can help them do that.”
The group is donating between 600 and 700 dictionaries this year. The club has kept the tradition for 17 years.
