Glenys Ryder, Community Service Chair
Danville Junction Grange # 65
Throughout the year, Danville Junction Grange carries out many community service projects. However, none are more satisfying or enjoyable than the Words for Thirds program! It is so much fun each year to enter classrooms, bursting with enthusiasm, as students anticipate receiving their new dictionaries!!! Once they are distributed, the room is alive with excited conversation about the “longest word”, the planets, sign language, and much more that the students find in their dictionaries! Notice the intent look on the students’ faces in the photo as they study them!!
This year we were able to distribute dictionaries to over three hundred third graders at three schools in the area. We are already planning for next year!
