The Washington Township Lions Club

The Washington Township Lions Club, that traditionally keeps busy selling Christmas Trees on 86th Street and corn at the Indiana State Fair, has changed up their routine over the course of the last week as they have delivered dictionaries to each and every third grader in Washington Township Schools.  A rich commitment to building relationships and supporting their community, the local club made it a priority to personally visit each and every elementary school and place a dictionary in the hands of each student.

 The initial idea came about as the club was searching for a hands on project.  This national project was identified as the perfect opportunity to support the Washington Township community.  In 2014 Nora Elementary was chosen as the pilot school and received 144 dictionaries for their third graders.  After the success of the pilot they made it a priority to secure the necessary funds to reach out to all seven elementary schools.  Their hopes and dreams came true as they successfully delivered 901 dictionaries to our current third graders.  Additional dictionaries were provided to each school for new students as well as to have additional resources to use in the classroom and school community.

**It is important to note that they have also provided funding for students needing vision assistance.  A monetary donation of $2,000.00 helped to fill the gap in MEDICAID funding that our families often experience when attempting to repair or replace broke eyeglasses,
