The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club is hosting its 23rd annual Great Bridgton Duck Race on Monday, July 4th at 11:30 am at the Stevens Brook bridge on Main Street, Bridgton.  Rotarians are selling tickets outside Renys Department Store on weekends, at Music on Main, at the fireworks on Sunday evening at Stevens Brook Elementary School, and the day of the race on Main Street. At $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00, Rotarians are able to raise about 30 percent of the funds needed for scholarships, community suppers, and other projects addressing the needs of veterans, children and the food insecure. Winners of the Duck Race receive prizes in the amount of $500, 1st prize; $250, 2nd prize; and $100, 3rd prize. Reach out to a Rotarian for your tickets.

Rotarian Jesse Walsh presented a $500 scholarship to Sarah Rowe of Denmark as part of the 2022 Adult Education Graduation Program on Tuesday, June 14.  Sarah is looking forward to her studies at Central Maine Community College with plans to enroll in the Social Sciences Program and eventually transfer to a Bachelors Program in the future.   

We Rotarians wish you congratulations and all of the very best in your future plans, Sarah Rowe! 

This award represents one of three scholarships given out by the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club each year to students pursuing academic or vocational careers. 

Justin McIver of Main Eco Homes, spoke with Bridgton-Lake Region Rotarians and Friends about working together to enhance the vibrancy of Bridgton. Examples he cited included: Music on Main, a planned Market on Main, and the revitalization of the Stevens Brook Trail. About 20 people assembled either in-person at Stella's on the Square or via Zoom.

Thursday, May 19, 2022, Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club had the extreme pleasure of honoring six Citizens of the Month, seniors from Lake Region High School, who exemplify service in school and the community. Each student, as well as their family members, friends and teachers were recognized. The celebratory breakfast was created by Rotarians Carol Rothenberg and Joanne Cohn, key members on the Club’s Youth Committee.  From the podium Carol Rotenberg did the honors of acknowledging each student.  President Jessica Lynn Putnam presented each in turn with a framed certificate and a $100 gift card. About 30 people attended the gathering held at the Bridgton Community Center. 

Due to the pandemic, this is the first celebratory event for Citizens of the Month in three years.  The six were honored all together rather than separately as they have been in years past. Honorees were Libby Blais (November), Sam Brown (December), Abby Elsaesser (January), Sabrina Lopez (February), Brianna Sargent (March), and Shivani Prado (April). 

Remarked Jessica Putnam after the event. “Congratulations to all the Citizens of the Month. What an outstanding group of young people.  For us Rotarians, it was a wonderful occasion for an in-person meetingsomething we’ve not done enough of lately.”
