TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Members of The Rotary Club of Tahoe City were back at Tahoe Lake Elementary School again this past Tuesday to lend a hand to local schools by donating educational materials.

They gave out more than 75 dictionaries, covering all three third-grade classrooms. Each student received a personal copy of the illustrated hardcover dictionary.

“It’s really special to see the kids light up when they get their own dictionary,” said Don Bell, a committed Rotarian who has a long history in education.

He certainly was not exaggerating. Each and every child could barely stay seated as they went through their new book.

They were continually asking questions and sharing new information with their peers. Don has played an integral part in coordinating this event that is fully funded and executed by The Rotary Club of Tahoe City and its members.
