Phil Scott joined the group to meet fellow Rotarians and speak.

Growing the economy was one of Scott’s most important topics at the meeting, while making Vermont more affordable and creating ways to keep young adults in Vermont, according to a press release from the Rotary Club.

A point he made was, “6, 3 and 1,” in reference to Vermont’s aging population and stagnant population growth which sees an average of six Vermont workers leave daily. On average, three students per day withdraw from school, and one Vermont child per day is born exposed to drugs, all according to the governor, who said he keeps these statistics in the back of his mind and tries to improve the future of Vermont.

The Ludlow Rotary Club meets from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday at DJ’s Restaurant on Main Street in Ludlow. The club is active in local and international projects. New members are welcome. For more info regarding upcoming projects and club news, visit www.ludlowrotary.com.
