Statement of Purpose
The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club, a non-profit service organization, helps our local communities’ youth, elderly, veterans and others worldwide in need of food, utilities, education, and access to health care and other services by providing financial support and engaging in hands-on projects.

 Children’s Librarian Samantha Zawistowski accepts donation for Literacy Loons!

The Bridgton Public Library is excited to announce a partnership with the Bridgton-Lakes Region Rotary Club in a project to help promote literacy among children in the community.

Literacy Loons! gives every Stevens Brook first grader the opportunity to receive up to $14 of free books from Bridgton Books simply by using their library cards!

This community effort is supported also by Bridgton Books, Friends of the Library, and Bear Pond Learning.

It’s always exciting to see more young faces at the library!

This Christmas our Rotary Club adopted students from Songo Locks  and Steven’s Brook Elementary Schools  so they could have presents under the tree. These included clothes, winter wear and toys. 
Here is a letter from Amy Saunders at Songo Locks expressing her appreciation. 
“Songo Locks can't thank you enough for your kindness and generosity to the children and families at the holiday time. The families were grateful for the thoughtfulness and usefulness of items. It is people like you and your organization that make this community great. Please send out sincerest appreciation to all your volunteers and club members. Cheers to a New year!”

Our club completed installation of a new playground at Bridge Crossing/Dodge House School in Bridgton. This facility is a co-educational facility for students 5-14 years of age. Rotarian Sheila Rollins, Project Coordinator, advises it will provide opportunities for development of cognitive skills, problem solving, and social/emotional skills. This was partially funded through a District Grant by the Rotary Foundation.
 
Over 150 dictionaries were delivered to third graders today at Stevens Brook Elementary, Songo Locks Elementary and the Dodge House School.  Rotarians who made it all happen were Erin Nelson, George Klauber, Linda England, Carol Madsen and Mike Daley.
