O&R, North Rockland Rotary Share The Power Of Words; Donate Dictionaries To Over 225 Haverstraw 5th Graders

The North Rockland Rotary Club (NRRC) and O&R distributed new dictionaries yesterday to approximately 225 students at Haverstraw Elementary School.

The Rotary Club annually distributes the dictionaries to every fifth grader in the North Rockland School District. A dictionary event is held at each elementary school (Haverstraw, Willow Grove, J.A. Farley and St. Gregory Barbarigo).


Orange & Rockland donated $1,000 for the purchase of the dictionaries. English-Spanish dictionaries also are provided to students whose parents may not be fluent in English to use at home. North Rockland Schools Superintendent Ileana Eckert and Principal Benito Herrero joined club members and students for the event. Eckert also is a North Rockland Rotary Club member.
