Danville Junction Grange #65 has completed their Dictionary Project for this year! We were able to distribute 360 dictionaries, which included five different schools in Auburn and New Gloucester. During our many years of participating in this project, our Grange has distributed over two thousand dictionaries, something of which we are very proud!
A special fund to purchase dictionaries has been established by Danville Junction Grange. Money is raised for this fund in many ways. We sell Rada knives and frozen chicken pies at our suppers and sales. Some money is donated by standing committees or individuals. We also have received community service grants from the Maine State Grange.
The photo shows a group of students from one of our schools inspecting their new dictionaries. While this project is very worthwhile, we Grangers, who deliver the dictionaries, gain so much enjoyment from feeling the excitement when we meet the students! They are so excited and enthusiastic! It is fun to watch their faces as they discover the sections on sign language, planets, presidents, and, of course, the page which has the longest word in the dictionary! We feel that this is a very worthwhile project, and one which we can continue for many years to come.
