What’s the one thing all kids want, the day after Halloween? Nope…not more candy. A dictionary!!

Well…not really.

Today the Austintown Rotary was proud to pass out dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in the Austintown Local School District.

An annual custom, the purpose of the campaign is to continually promote and preserve literacy, and a love of learning…tenants of the Rotary platform.

Students were introduced to the Rotary, and the many benefits of lifelong Community Service. They were also exposed to the great secret of Rotary: Service is Happiness.

Speaking to the 3rd graders about the many ways in which we can serve our fellow man, their comments and questions were inspirational.  Be proud Austintown parents…there truly seems to be an innate desire to serve, in all your children.
