“Noah Webster” returns to West Hartford to deliver dictionaries
This is the fifth dictionary project we have undertaken. As West Hartford is the birthplace of Noah Webster, the director of the Noah Webster House, Chris Dobbs, and I will do assemblies for the 3rd graders in all 11 public elementary schools as well as 3 parochial schools, St. Brigid, St. Thomas the Apostle, and Solomon Schechter, and the American School for the Deaf. Chris and I will go to the assemblies dressed in 18th century clothes, and I will talk about Rotary and the dictionary project, and Chris will act as Noah Webster and talk about how he wrote the dictionary and a little historical background on himself. Fellow Rotarians will then distribute the dictionaries to all the students.
