Elks deliver knowledge to district third graders

A volunteer from the Albany Elks teaches students how to use a dictionary.

Thank you Albany Elks Lodge #49!

Each year the organization’s mission includes putting a dictionary into the hands of every third grader in the City of Albany.

On Dec. 5, it was Eagle Point Elementary School’s turn and Jennifer Carabis’ class didn’t just receive a new educational tool, volunteers from the Elks also taught our students how to look up words and then helped them practice dictionary use.
