Ansonia Rotary Club members John Yeager and Rich Knoll handed out personal dictionaries to Karen Clayton’s third grade class at Assumption School this week, completing the Club’s annual contribution to local education.

The Club purchased dictionaries for all of 200 of Ansonia’s third graders. Assumption staff and students welcomed the gift, and then located the longest word in the English language in the books and attempted to pronounce it.

The distribution of dictionaries at Assumption followed distributions at Mead and Prendergast Schools in the previous weeks, and was organized by Rotary Club member and Superintendent Carol Merlone and Club President Lori Veillette.

The annual purchase and distribution is part of the Ansonia Rotary Club’s Community Services progam. The Ansonia Rotary Club meets for lunch weekly at Crave Restaurant. For more information, go to, or call 203-888-1101
