Each year we sponsor 2 students from other countries who spend a year going to school in Queensbury and Glens Falls High schools. They are typically hosted by two or three families each for the term they are here. Our club and many other community volunteers work with the schools
and host families to provide a rich and rewarding experience to these students while they are here in the USA.

The Rotary Club of Glens Falls Celebrates Community Service with High School Scholarship Program

Rotarians know that many of our local high school students selflessly provide community service to local organizations and worthy causes. To salute those students, the Rotary Club of Glens Falls created a scholarship opportunity for eligible seniors graduating from Glens Falls and Queensbury High Schools.

“The Dictionary Project”
     "The idea for The Dictionary Project began in 1992 when Annie Plummer of Savannah, Georgia, gave 50 dictionaries to children who attended a school close to her home. Each year she continued to give this gift, raising money to help give more and more books so that in her lifetime she raised enough money to buy 17,000 dictionaries for children in Savannah. Early on, her project attracted the attention of Bonnie Beeferman of Hilton Head, S.C., who began a project of raising money by selling crafts to buy dictionaries for the schoolchildren of Hilton Head and the surrounding communities.
Glens Falls Rotary Club Student Dictionary Project
On September 24-28th of 2018, The Glens Falls Rotary Club will offer third graders another opportunity this year for exploration and sharing of knowledge with the gift of dictionaries to students attending the Abraham Wing, Jackson Heights, Kensington, Big Cross and St . Mary’s/St. Alphonsus Regional Catholic Schools and in October of 2018, The Glens Falls Rotary Club will donate Scholastic books to the third graders in Queensbury Elementary Schools. This will be the 10th year for the club making such donations.  Rotary's International Literacy Project is based upon the belief that "...reading is the starting point for all economic and social opportunities this world has to offer.” See
