Rotary Club of Pearlridge kicks off 2021-2022 Rotary International Free Dictionary 5000 Project

The Rotary Club of Pearlridge (RCOP) is excited to kick-off the 2021-2022 Annual Rotary International Dictionary 5000 Project that will present free dictionaries in October and November to over 600 third grade students and their teachers representing 12 elementary schools in the Aiea and Pearl City school district complexes. The free dictionaries are purchased and donated to the schools each year by the Rotary Club of Pearlridge.

RCOP President Dick Mosko and Public Relations Chair Barry Villamil presented Our Savior Lutheran School in Aiea with their free dictionaries on Thursday, October 21, 2021. OSLS Principal Clarence De Lude, his third grade teacher, and students were excited to receive their brand new dictionaries. Principal De Lude is also a proud member of the RCOP.

RCOP President Mosko, along with board members Ralph Portmore and Barry Villamil will make a visit to Webling Elementary School in Aiea on Thursday, October 28 to delivery and present free dictionaries to 60 students and their teachers.

The RCOP will return at the end of the school year to present one student from each of the 12 elementary schools with a Good Citizen Award which includes a $50.00 check and recognition certificate from the Rotary Club of Pearlridge.

The RCOP Good Citizen Award will be presented to the student who best exemplified the principles of Rotary International’s “Four Way Test” throughout the school year. The RCOP Good Citizen Award winner will be selected by their teachers.

"Four Way Test"

1.  Is it the truth;
2.  Is it fair to all concerned,
3.  Will it bring good will and better friendships,
4.  Will it be beneficial to all concerned.
