Members of Burns Grange recently completed this years distribution of dictionaries to the third graders of Shiawassee County. Eight hundred and forty six books were handed out to the 3rd graders in Byron, Durand, New Lothrop, Corunna, Owosso, Ovid-Elsie, Morrice, Perry, Laingsburg, Laingsburg Christian, and St. Pauls in Owosso.
This year Burns Grange gave out its 15,000th dictionary. Instead of honoring only one child, the organization decided to honor the third grade classes that were involved with receiving that dictionary. Special stickers were put in the dictionaries to show that they were a part of those receiving the 15,000th dictionary and a small gift was given to each of the students. This took place at Perry Elementary. See photos of all the third grade Perry students showing off their books.
