During a visit to Lyndon Elementary School Feb. 1, 2024, the Lyndon Lions Club presented the third grade class and their teachers, Mrs. Woodruff and Mr. Bledsoe, with dictionaries to call their own. Lions District Governor Pam Bilyeu, Lyndon Lions President Barb Schattak, and member Lion Kathleen Burden presented the dictionaries to each student.

The Dictionary Project is sponsored by the Lydon Lions Club as part of its Reading Alert Program. The mission of the Dictionary Project is to ensure that everyone will be able to enjoy the benefits of owning a dictionary. By providing students with this tool, Dictionary Project sponsors, such as Lions Clubs, assist teachers in helping students become active readers, good writers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners. The dictionaries help students learn to use the English language effectively and assist them with their education, opening up to them all of the opportunities a good education offers, having a positive impact on the lives of children in their communities.

The Lyndon Lions Club supports the idea that a dictionary is an essential tool for a quality education, and a child cannot do his or her best work without one.
