Today was a very busy and enjoyable day visiting the Norwich Rotary Club. The day started early as the Club delivered over 350 Dictionaries to 3rd graders in classrooms all over Norwich. I had the pleasure of accompanying President Barry Shead and Past President Bonnie Hong to one of the schools. Nice touch Norwich handing out Yellow Dictionaries.
