R.I. Grange donates 400 dictionaries

By New Grange, September/October 2011

  OCTOBER 15, 2011 --

Roger Williams-Rumford Grange recently distributed 400 dictionaries to all of the third graders in the city of East Providence as part of the national Dictionary Project. 

This is the eighth year that the third graders of East Providence have received dictionaries from the local Grange. John A. Lawson, Jr. Master and Community Service Chairman of the Grange, visited all eight elementary schools to make the presentations. 

In a thank you letter to the Grange, Mary Teixeira, third grade teacher at Silver Spring School wrote: “Some of the children did not own their own dictionaries, but now thanks to you, they do and can proof read and correct their spelling at home as well as in school. It is very beneficial to them and much appreciated by me also!” 

Forty-eight dictionaries were also given to the Rhode Island State Grange Dictionary Pool for distribution in other towns.
