I am writing to let you know that we have successfully and joyfully distributed dictionaries to 5 schools. I want to thank all that volunteered to help on this project.
Randy for making sure we got the dictionaries on time and organizing us to help put the Rotary labels inside.  Jeanna for helping me with the ClubRunner email system to keep everyone in the loop.   Benson, Zeda, Pat, Jeanna and Charlene for helping with 3 classes at DeSilva school.  Nate, Paul, and Valerie for taking care of the students at St. Joseph's school.  Doug, Paul, and Tom for assisting with 2 classes at Kapiolani school.   And Lani and Paul for helping me at Keaukaha school.   An extra thank you to Lani for being ready and willing to help me at Kalanianaole school even though I gave her the wrong info! 
 
We provided dictionaries to 241 students. They were all very excited to have their own dictionary and the teachers were very appreciative. 
 
For those of you who were unable to participate: if you haven't done this before keep it in mind for the future. It really is one of the funnest projects. The kids are so enthusiastic and the teachers are genuinely thankful. It is a real upper to your day!
 
Mahalo nui loa to all,
Irene
