Elks donate dictionaries to Lyons students

Lyons Elks Lodge No. 869 recently donated dictionaries to every third grade student at the Lyons Elementary School. Elks Lodge Officer Julie Wunder, a retired Elementary School teacher, made the presentation at an assembly for the students.

As part of the presentation the Elks explained the donation to the students and how the dictionaries could be used by them. The dictionaries will be used by third grade teachers to help the students throughout the school year with their many educational programs.

Also during the presentation the Elks Lodge members spoke to the students about the dangers of alcohol and drug use and distributed to the children activity books, book marks and other information to remind the students of what they were taught.
