In December, of 2018 The Barre Rotary Club distributed atlases and dictionaries to six area schools.

Community Involvement:
The Barre Rotary Club has been giving out dictionaries and atlases to the 3rd and 5th graders in Central Vermont for almost 20 years.
The Club has found this to be a rewarding community outreach program as it promotes literacy in our youth.  A special thanks to Joe Preddy and Elizabeth LaPerle as they have been working on this project for a very long time. It is what Rotarians do.
