Green Tree Rotary gave dictionaries to third-grade students at eight area elementary schools the week of November 2, 2014. The Third Grade is seen as a pivotal time for children who are leaning to write, and having a dictionary for the child's own use helps them immensely. This is the sixth year that we have been involved with "The Dictionary Project".
Green Tree Rotary awarded two $1,500 scholarships for 2014, The students receiving the scholarships were Amy Coombs and Chandrasekar Muthiah. The students were selected based on several criteria: Scholarship, School Activities, Community Service and Financial Need. Amy Coombs is graduating from Keystone Oaks High School.

Chandrasekar Muthiah is also graduating from Keystone Oaks High School. He is planning to attend Northwestern University, where he plans to pursue a degree in medicine. .
Greentree Rotary members prepared 130 Easter Baskets and distributed them to shut-ins within the Green Tree area.
