    It was Christmas come early at Green Bank Elementary/Middle School last Friday when Marlinton Rotary Club President Emery Grimes delivered dictionaries to students. Every year, the club donates dictionaries to all third graders in the county. The Dictionary Project began in 1992 when Annie Plummer, of Savannah, Georgia, gave 50 dictionaries to children at a local school. Plummer donated more than 17,000 dictionaries to Georgia students before her death in 1999. The Dictionary Project, a nonprofit organization, was founded in her honor and adopted by the RotaryClub.
