The Georgetown County Dictionary Project is a cooperative effort of the Rotary clubs of Andrews, Georgetown Breakfast, Georgetown Lunch, Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island that was begun by Alan Walters in 1999. Walters, Past District Governor and a member of the Rotary Club of Georgetown, is shown after distributing dictionaries to third graders at Plantersville Elementary recently. To date, more than 10,000 dictionaries have been distributed to students in Georgetown County.
The Georgetown Lunch Rotary Club has provided dictionaries to all third graders at Kensington, Plantersville and Pleasant Hill elementary schools for the 14th consecutive year. Walters said, “Literacy is a top priority for Rotary clubs worldwide.”
