Elks Members visited third graders at Lincoln and Richardson Elementary Schools to deliver their donated dictionaries.
In our area, it is an annual event that the Elks puts on every year! They come into our schools and visit the third grade class and give them each their very own dictionary. Local businesses help the Elks purchase the dictionaries – and Lincoln and Richardson Elementaries were sponsored by Connection Bank!
This has been a tradition for so long, that some of the third graders, who have previously received the dictionaries, are using them now in college. The Elks’ focus is primarily on Veterans and children, they sponsor many area youth activities – Elks’ Hoop Shoot, Essay Contests, Scholarships, and much more!
The third graders were able to learn about the Elks and what they do for our community and they got to put their dictionaries to use through a quick and fun activity as well! A very big Thank You to Connection Bank and to Ryan Wilson and Scott Meller from the Elks!
