Join Us At A Meeting
Covid-19 Update - May 5, 2022
We continue to meet in-person with a Zoom option, and while we encourage unvaccinated attendees to wear a mask, mask are optional.  Our regular meeting time is 4:30pm, at Stella's on the Square, located at 6 High Street, Bridgton ME, but we do intersperse meetings at a different time and place, so please check the calendar below for the specifics for any meeting.

For an invitation to join the meeting by Zoom, please let George Szok know your desire at gszoksbox@gmail.com .

Jessica Putnam
President 2021-2022
Rotarian Jesse Walsh is a member of the newest team making home deliveries for Harrison Food Bank. Every Tuesday morning, four teams of Rotarians and Friends of Rotary arrive at the Harrison Food Bank and pick up boxes for their 4-8 home deliveries in Norway, Oxford and South Paris.  The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club is in its third year providing this service for the food bank clients, many of whom are housebound for various reasons.
 
If you would like to work with this program even on a temporary basis, contact Carol Madsen at carjmad@hotmail.com.  All those who provide this service find it rewarding.

After nearly two years exclusively on Zoom, the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club is adapting well to the hybrid option when the majority of members are meeting in person.  “Each meeting the Hybrid Option is working better and better,” exclaimed Jessica Putnam, President for the Club.  “This past week we had three speakers, two in person and one virtual. About 12 Rotarians and guests attended the meeting in person at Stella’s on the Square.  Another six attended virtually.  We are making it work, even with slide shows and speakers both in person and virtually.  The benefit of hybrid is that members who are out of town, checking in from work, or not yet comfortable meeting with others indoors, are able to participate.  And those choosing the fellowship that in person gatherings affords are able to do that as well. We are excited that it is working so well.”
The Bridgton Lakes Region Rotary Club held its first Community Kettle for 2022 on Thursday, February 24 at the Bridgton Community Center. Chef Nick Orgo, owner of Stella’s on the Square, guided a group of enthusiastic volunteers from the Rotary Club and the Interact Club of the Lake Region High School in the preparation of a hearty combination of chili, cornbread, salad, and cookies. The delicious take-out dinner was well-received, as usual. Please look for our next Community Kettle and join us for a special gourmet meal.
