Members of the St. Charles Lions Club will again deliver dictionaries to approximately 700 third grade students and teachers in 33 classrooms in the St.Charles School District, the Orchard Farm School District and the parochiall schools in the area early in the fall semester.

Teachers have praised the dictionaries. Students love them too.   A child who received her dictionary two years ago took it home and slept with it.  We receive many thank you notes from the students letting us know how much they like their own personal dictionary.

The coordinator of the project, Lyn Porterfied said "our distribution of the dictionaries is one of the many ways we serve our community and it fits well with the Reading Action Program recently established by Lions Club International to promote literacy throughout the world"


Remember all those used eyeglasses that sit in drawers?

St. Charles Lions Club is cooperating with another organization in an effort to wash, dry, read the prescriptions, bag, sort and box the glasses in order to prepare them for mission trips to other countries, such as Mexico.
