Every third grade student in Ansonia received his/her own personal dictionary last week compliments of the Ansonia Rotary Club. The purchase and distribution of dictionaries to third grades has been an annual tradition of the Club dating back at least twenty years. Club President Lori Veillette, Secretary Robert Rose and Principal Liz Nimons assisted with the distribution at Mead and Prendergast Schools, respectively. According to Prendergast Principal Liz Nimmons, teachers look forward to the additional resource each year at this time.
.The Rotary Club raises funds for this academic project and others, like an annual scholarship, through fundraising and community support. Special thanks goes Dr. Jay Dworkin and the Southern CT Dental group for their generous support, as well as Ralph Mann & Sons..
