Join Us At A Meeting
Covid-19 Update - August 1, 2021
We continue to watch closely the guidance from the Maine CDC regarding in person indoor meetings.  We are being careful about when in-person meetings make the best sense.  Where appropriate we will hold Zoom Meetings, and others will be in-person. The best way to know what the meeting format will be, would be to check below where it shows our speaker schedule.  That list should tell you whether we are going to meet in-person or not.
 
Please Note: Current guidelines require that all visitors must wear masks until vaccination status is confirmed.

Jessica Putnam Rotary President (R.) Presents Susan Jennings Ex. Dir of 4-H Foundation with Check for $10,000.
 
The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club handed over its $10,000 match for local donations to the Magic Lantern Innovation Lab project.  On Tuesday, October 12, President Jessica Putnam from the local Rotary Club handed a check for $10,000 to Susan Jennings, Executive Director, of the 4-H Foundation at the University of Maine, the organization behind the Magic Lantern Innovation Lab & Learning Center.  This represented a pledged match for the first $10,000 raised from local citizens, nonprofits and small businesses in the lakes region. 
 

History Walk Scheduled for Thursday, October 21, 10:00 a.m. to Noon, starting at Food City parking lot in Bridgton. 

Carol Madsen, who chairs the Rotary Club’s Environmental Committee, said, “The portion of the trail and brook scheduled for cleanup is where Stevens Brook powered as many as nine mills from the late 1700’s into the 20th century.  As recently as the 1960’s, mills were located on or near Stevens Brook.  In fact, Food City is on the site of the old Pondicherry Woolen Mill.  Built in 1865, it began using steam in 1889 and employed 225 people in 1904. We're excited to be working with Alanna Doughty of Lakes Environmental Association (LEA) on both the cleanup and the History Walk. Alanna has been leading these tours for several years now and will lead the historic tour of the mill sites on Thursday, October 21 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.  Mark your calendars."

Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club had its 12th Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, September 18th at Bridgton Highlands Country Club. The Rotary Club would like to thank all those who made this Golf Tournament a success, including our sponsors, our golfers, our volunteers and, of course, Bridgton Highlands Country Club. 

“Everything was superlative," remarked Dr. Lisa Ryan, Committee Chair.  "We had more golfers (68) and sponsors (40) than ever before.  The weather was great for the game.  The food provided by Stella’s on the Square and the Bridgton Highlands Country Club was outstanding. And we raised the amount of money we were hoping to, $10,000. This will allow us to continue to do the kind of work in the community that we are dedicated to doing.”
