Join Us At A Meeting
Covid-19 Update - November 9, 2021
We continue to watch closely the guidance from the Maine CDC regarding in person indoor meetings. We have elected to hold Hybrid Meetings going forward, meaning we will meet in person at Stella's on the Square, and offer a zoom feed to those who do not feel comfortable meeting in person. 
Please Note: Current guidelines require that all visitors must wear masks until vaccination status is confirmed.

Each year, Rotary International awards up to 50 fully-funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of its seven peace centers. This year the candidate Cassandra Varanka, sponsored by Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club, was one of these 50 winners. Chosen from some 600 applicants across the globe, Cassandra will study at the University of Queensland's (Australia) Rotary Centre for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution starting in early 2023. This Centre is part of a global program to advance research, teaching, practical training and knowledge on issues of international relations, conflict resolution and peace-building. It offers a tailored Master's Degree in International Studies, aimed at potential world and community leaders, designed to have a practical effect on addressing international and regional conflicts.
 
Cassandra now lives and works in Washington DC, but has strong ties to New England, where she was born, finished her college studies, and where her parents still live. She is especially attached to Bridgton where her parents have a vacation home and her uncle resides. 

 

Rotary members in the Bridgton-Lakes Region are taking action in honor of World Polio Eradication to raise awareness, funds, and support to end polio, a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today. $1 of every pint sold on October 28, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. to Closing at the Olde Mill Tavern will be donated to Rotary‚Äôs fight to eradicate Polio.

WHO:            Anyone who wants to join us for Pints for Polio
WHEN:          October 28th
WHERE:       The Olde Mill Tavern Restaurant, 56 Main St., Harrison 

 Alanna Doughty of Lakes Environmental Association and Mike Davis of the Bridgton Historical Society shared a wealth of knowledge with the 17 participants who joined the Stevens Brook Trail History Walk on Thursday, October 21st.  The entire trail is rich with history.  This walk focused on the mills from the Pondicherry Woolen Mill at the Food City site to the Smith Sash, Furniture and Coffins Factory on Smith Avenue. Participants were from Waterford, Sweden and Bridgton, along the brook and beyond.  Newcomers and folks with a history of family members working in the mills participated and shared along with the educators.
