The South Orangetown Rotary Club and O&R presented dictionaries to over 200 third graders at the Tappan Zee Elementary School today at the school. The presentation was part of the Rotary’s ongoing effort to support educational projects in the community. O&R donated $450 to help make the project a success.
O&R’s Public Affairs Director Tom Brizzolara, a member of the South Orangetown Rotary, said, “Words are the keys to everyday life, knowledge and success. Those keys can help open up the whole world for these students.”
He added, “We hope the dictionaries will help instill in our children a rich appreciation of words: their meaning, their importance and their power.”
