LITERACY IS KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN LIFE TODAY

October 17, 2013 - As part of our commitment to literacy, the club purchased 600 dictionaries for all Norristown Area School District 3rd graders and (here) delivered them to Hancock Elementary School.  This year the club doubled the number of dictionaries to insure all schools received a distribution   The dictionaries are English-Spanish and the children were excited to receive their copy and write their name inside the cover.  Bob Schmidt chaired the project. (photo credit the Times Herald)
