Minden Rotary Breakfast Helps Educate Children


The Minden Rotary Club hosted a pancake feed during and after Minden's Christmas City Run.

This breakfast holds a special meaning for members raising money to give dictionaries to third graders in Kearney County.

It's something concrete that gives kids the opportunity to enhance their lives.

"It's kind of nice, it gives them something they can hang on to, it's their own," said Minden Rotary Club member Daniel Davis. "They keep it at school if they need it at school, after the third grade year is over they can take it home and it's theirs to keep at home."

Minden Rotarians have already handed out dictionaries to 120 kids in Kearney County. $600 from Saturday's breakfast will go towards next year's dictionary project.
