Rotary Distributes Dictionaries to Third Graders

The Pawling Rotary Club distributed dictionaries to the students of the third grade at Pawling Elementary School on Wednesday, November 14. Pawling Rotary provides dictionaries to each third grader at the Mizzentop Day School, as well. Dictionaries are provided annually to students as part of Rotary’s mission to support community youngsters. The books, personalized with the assistance of Kate Calandro at Pawling Elementary School, are enthusiastically anticipated by students and teachers alike.

In attendance at this year’s presentation ceremony were Rotary Club President Ann Godesky, Project Chair Richard Harshbarger, Club Secretary and Rotary immediate past President Jeff Asher, Board Member Stephanie McLaughlin (Smith), and Pawling Library Children’s Program Coordinator Neena McBaer. The ceremony was also attended by Pawling Central School District Superintendent Dr. William Ward, and Pawling Elementary School Principal Dr. Debra Kirkus,
