Picture Caption: Rotary's Citizen of the Month Honorees (l to r) Ryan Philbrook, Tristan Cormier, Jack Buelar, Kyan MacDonald, Alecssander Freitas, Sydney Mushrow, Olivia Pearson, Emily Rock and Rotary Club President Aaron Hagan. COM Elizabeth O'Leary was absent.

On Friday, May 19, the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club honored 9 Citizens of the Month (COM) from Lake Region High School (LRHS) at a celebratory breakfast at the Bridgton Community Center.  Each senior COM received a Certificate, a gift card and information about Rotary.  Accompanied by parents and guardians, the eight who were able to attend, each spoke briefly and enjoyed a delicious meal.


The Citizen of the Month award is presented to high school seniors who have provided service in the community reflective of Rotary’s Motto:  Service Above Self.


President Aaron Hagan introduced each student and presented the awards.  Several of the COMs had participated in Dirigo State, a week-long program offered by the American Legion to teach high school students how our state government works and to give them experience in debating issues, running for office, and setting up a model government.
