Ludlow Rotary speaker discusses pure water project

LUDLOW— The Ludlow Rotary Club (LRC) recently enjoyed a discussion on the pure water project of Rotary International. Featured speakers were Doug Rupert, representing Rotary District 7870, and Carolyn Crowley Meub of the Rutland South Rotary Club who is the executive director of the Pure Water for the World project. They described the recent work done by Rotary in both Haiti and Honduras to provide clean water to areas almost totally lacking in clean water. The central point of their discussion centered around a water filtering device being installed in both countries to provide drinkable water. The device uses sand and bio-matter to gradually filter the water. The project in Haiti is centered around an area within the capitol city of Port-au-Prince where most Haitians lack access to clean water.

LRC meets for lunch on most Tuesdays at 12:15 p.m. at DJ’s Restaurant. The LRC is small and is always looking to welcome new members.
