The Punta Gorda Rotary Club has made contributions to high schools in the Toledo District.  Correspondent Paul Mahung reports.

Paul Mahung reporting
While some Toledo highs schools have already received their contribution books, others will be getting their share shortly.  Lisa Avila of the Punta Gorda Rotary Club spoke to Love News.

Lisa Avila - Punta Gorda Rotary Club
"The Rotary Club of Punta Gorda along with the Sunrise Club of Belize City has ventured into a project of issuing English Spanish dictionaries to all high schools in Toledo, especially to all first formers.  We have delivered dictionaries over to Toledo Community College, Julian Cho and Corazon High School, Mafredi Vo-Tech, Providence Adventist High School and Claver College Extension.  We had ventured into this project because we saw the need for all first formers to get English Spanish dictionaries because Spanish is a very important subject for our students."

Besides this donation project  of English and Spanish dictionaries to first form students of Toledo High Schools, the Punta Gorda Rotary Club last year undertook a five year plan of feeding project in four Toledo rural primary schools and provided needed school kitchen utensils to five other Toledo schools.

Great job Punta Gorda Rotary; As a long time Rotarian I have had the opportunity to serve in the Dictionary Drive each year in several different communities....This is a very important contribution to local education and often superb spill over education to the parents of the recipients.....Glad to hear about it in this area.
