The fourth annual Rotary dictionary distribution took place last week. Rotary clubs from Silverdale and East Bremerton handed out 872 American Heritage dictionaries to third-grade students.

The Rotary clubs targeted 12 Central Kitsap elementary schools as well as Crosspoint Academy and home-schooled students.

“If the looks on the children’s faces and the amazing student thank you notes received weren’t enough, the sincere appreciation of teachers and school staff is an added bonus,” the clubs said in a press release.

Funding for the distribution came from the Great Kitsap Duck Race at Whaling Days, and three East Bremerton fundraisers: the Sweetheart Auction, the Bremerton Party and the Blast.
