Schools to mark Ansonia founder's birthday

ANSONIA - As part of a year-long celebration of Ansonia's 125th Anniversary, city schools will be commemorating the birthday of Ansonia's founder, Anson Phelps, Monday with historically themed activities. 

Mayor David S. Cassetti will read a proclamation for the day.  ANSONIA 125 event coordinator Melissa Torres invites residents and businesses to help celebrate Anson's birthday by dressing or decorating in blue and white for the day. 
Blue and white are Ansonia High School's colors.

My Sister's Place is holding a store special in honor of the celebration: $1.25 for all blue and white clothing items March 24, excluding boutique.
My Sister's Place is a thrift shop at 380 Main St. All of its proceeds benefit The Umbrella program for victims of domestic violence run by BHcare.

Churches have been requested to ring their bells or sound their chimes at 6 p.m. Monday. 
Any organizations interested in hosting a special event for the ANSONIA 125 celebrations throughout the year may contact Torres at
