Julie Forbes, ND
President 2020-2021
For the last 21 years, the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club has held an annual Duck Race.  Every year but last, during the pandemic, the site of the race has been at the bridge on Main Street overlooking the Stevens Brook in downtown Bridgton. Winners receive Cash Prizes:  1st Prize is $500, 2nd Prize is $250, 3rd Prize is $100.
The Duck Race is one of the Rotary Club's biggest fundraisers and according to the 2021 Duck Race team leader Rotarian Aaron Hagan, from Key Bank in Bridgton, "it is so great to be back 100 percent for this event." Hagan remarked, "We'll be selling Duck Race Tickets at $5.00 each and 5 for $20.00 outside Renys and the Bridgton Farmers Market on the last two weekends in June, at the fireworks on July 3rd, and at the race site on the morning of the 4th. You can get your tickets at any of those places or from your favorite Rotarian."
Funds raised support the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Clubs projects with youth, seniors, veterans, food pantries, literacy and much more.
