Rotarians seeking program applicants


LEWISTON – Lewiston-Auburn Rotary is seeking applications for an individual to represent the club at this year’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program.

The program will take place Friday through Sunday, Sept. 7 to 9, at Northern Outdoors in Caratunk. The focus of the program will be leadership through teamwork.

The candidate must be between the ages of 21 and 35. The cost will be covered by the club. It includes lodging, meals and the program.

The experience has numerous physical and mental challenges that test logic, teamwork and the ability to conquer each obstacle. A fear of heights should be considered when considering the program, as the candidate will be involved in activities on a wire tethered approximately 25 to 30 feet in the air between trees while wearing a harness.

Those interested should submit an application by Wednesday, Aug. 8. Applications are available on the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Web site at
