The purchase of dictionaries for all Columbia County third-grade students is the goal of the fourth annual Rotary Club of Magnolia Pancake Breakfast.
The event will be 7-10 a.m. Saturday in Peace Hall at First United Methodist Church. The meal includes pancakes, bacon, sausage and a drink. Tickets are $7 and are available from any Rotary Club member.
Rotarians plan to purchase the current edition of the “American Heritage Children’s Dictionary” for distribution to students without charge.
The 896-page, hardcover book has more than 13,000 main entries and more than 1,000 full-color photos and drawings. Brief articles go into more detail on many topics. An appendix features a thesaurus, and sections on phonics and spelling, measurement and geography.
