Joliet Rotary Donates Dictionaries to Students


In addition to handing out the dictionaries, members of the Rotary shared the Rotary Four-Way Test with the third grade students at T.E. Culbertson, M.J. Cunningham, Eisenhower, Farragut, Forest Park Individual Education, Thomas Jefferson, Edna Keith, A.O. Marshall, Pershing, Sator Sanchez, Carl Sandburg, Isaac Singleton, Taft, Lynne Thigpen, and Woodland Elementary Schools, looked up words in the dictionaries, and even found the longest word in the English Language (with 1,909 letters)! The Rotary Four-Way Test asks, “Is it the TRUTH, Is it FAIR to all concerned, Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS, and “Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”
