DictionaryMerrillville 3rd graders show off their new dictionaries.The Merrillville Kiwanis Clubs joined together to make sure that every third grade student in the Merrillville schools will be able to have their very own dictionary.

In April, 2007, Club members personally distributed 544 dictionaries to 26 classrooms in the Merrillville Community Schools and Aquinas School.

Dictionaries will again be given to all third grade students this year. The Merrillville Kiwanis Clubs plan to make this an annual project for many years to come!
