Dr V. Gurunathan, the club’s PRO, said that the gift of dictionaries to students from Chinese, Indian and Malay schools is one of the many community-oriented programmes that Rotary Club of Sitiawan had in its pipeline. The students were required to write a simple essay in English on why they wished to own a dictionary. The response was overwhelming.  Rotary Club of Sitiawan plans to do more for the hard-core poor, the aged and the physically and intellectually handicapped. Present at the handing-over ceremony were members of Rotary Club USJ Petaling Jaya.
