Ludlow Rotary flood recovery reaches $100,000

 

During a recent community meeting with representatives from the State of Vermont to exchange information on state assistance in flood recovery and to inform them about the damages, Thomas Ray, Ludlow Area Rotary Club president, reported that Ludlow Area Rotary will spend about $100,000. 

Funds available so far in response to the recent flooding are from contributions received specifically for this disaster and from Rotary’s own Charitable Fund balance. Funds already disbursed have gone to:

 The purchase of dehumidifiers and fans that were distributed at the Ludlow Community Center immediately after the flooding, and to the

Black River Action Team, which has been addressing direct damage caused by the flooding.

Additional funds are being disbursed to affected businesses and residents in Rotary’s service area through the processes established by the Okemo Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Crown Point Board of Realtors.

Ludlow Rotary has received flood response contributions from several other Rotary Clubs and from generous local businesses, residents and second homeowners. Ray indicated the club is expecting more funds as well. Rotary club members and families also have been contributing their time to assist in the response and recovery efforts.
