     For 12 years, The Rotary Club of Goshen, NY has gifted and presented annually, dictionaries - English & Spanish - to all Third Graders at Goshen Intermediate School and St. John School.
     Goshen Rotarian Dictionary Project Chair, Allen Zick reported that the distribution of the dictionaries is normally done in person in January or February by several Rotarians. However, due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the dictionaries were delivered to the schools in May and distributed by the teachers.
     The photos that accompany this story where taken by Jennifer Capozzi and Jennifer Hopkins and show students in their class at the Intermediate School. The teachers also wrote a note of Thanks to Goshen Rotary.....
       "Dear Goshen Rotary Club,
             Our class was so excited to receive their dictionaries today.
             Many of them said that they didn't have one at home, and they quickly opened it up and looked through it.
             They couldn't believe that they could keep it! We talked about it's many uses and they loved the maps and fact sheets in the back.
             Thank you for thinking of us each year, and for giving our Third Graders this valuable tool.
                  Sincerely, Mrs. Capozzi's and Ms. Hopkins' class"
