In the Spring, the Ansonia Rotary Club replanted flowers and groomed the bushes and shrubs at Haddad Park in downtown Ansonia at the corner of Bridge and Main Streets. The Club adopted the spot last year, and has been responsible for keeping it looking well ever since.
Lori Veillette handed off the presidency of the Club to Joe Pinto in June, and they arranged for $2,500 of groceries to be delivered to the Samela Food Pantry at Christ Episcopal Church. Funds for the purchase were via a grant from the Rotary District Foundation, and the delivery was arranged by Presidents David Morgan of TEAM Inc. and Patrick Charmel of Griffin Hospital. In addition, Joe purchased $500 of food for the Assumption Church pantry through a second Rotary grant.
The Club also awarded its annual financial scholarship to two Ansonia High School graduating seniors in July: Tyler Cafaro and Maliqa Mosley-Williams. Each student received a grant of $500.
The club normally meets for lunch at Crave Restaurant every other Tuesdays at 12:00 PM. Call Joe Pinto for more information, 203-623-1105.
