STUDENTS AT CLAYTON AVENUE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RECEIVED THEIR VERY OWN DICTIONARIES.

Vestal Elks Lodge HAS DONATED OVER 4,900 DICTIONARIES TO VESTAL ELEMENTARY STUDENTS SINCE 2004.

DICTIONARies CAN BE A VALUABLE LEARNING TOOL AND THEY ARE GIFTED IN THE HOPES THAT STUDENTS TAKE TIME TO LEARN EXTENSIVE VOCABULARY WHILE THEY ARE AT A YOUNG AGE.

"I love to see the look on the kids' faces when you tell them that they're their books," says John Gardner, District Deputy Grand Exaulted Ruler of New York State.

Thanks to civic organizations all over the country, such as Vestal Elks Lodge 2508, millions of children have received their very own dictionaries.
