Armed with the dictionaries and thesauruses members of the Crestline-Lake Gregory Rotary Club presented to them last week, the 3rd and 5th-graders at Valley of Enchantment Elementary School are on their way to bigger and better vocabularies.

Seven members of the Rotary Club visited the classrooms, passing out the books and explaining what Rotary is. They didn’t have to offer much explanation to the 5th-graders, many of whom are members of EarlyAct, Rotary’s club for elementary school children.

In fact, in Mr. Warhol’s classroom, where EarlyAct meets, a banner spelling out Rotary’s 4-Way Test hangs. When Jim DeLapp, president of the Crestline club, asked the students to recite the four tenets of Rotary with him, some glanced at the banner, others read from the bookplate in the front of the thesaurus and others said them from memory.
