DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -Getting the definition for a word is as simple as asking Siri, but some Wiregrass students got the tool to do it the old way.

The Dothan Rotary Club delivered dictionaries to every Dothan City School third-grader.

It’s one of the club’s annual projects.

Members usually go into classrooms and hand out the dictionaries to students.

Because of the pandemic, they were not able to do that this year.

Instead, they delivered the required amount to each school.

“The big goal was to get the dictionaries into the student’s hands as soon as possible and so we fill real good to have them in before October is over,” says the club’s former president Dell Goodwin.

This year they donated more than 600 dictionaries.
