The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club is set to host its 23rd annual Great Bridgton Duck Race at 11:30 a.m. Monday, July 4, at the Stevens Brook bridge on Main Street in Bridgton. Rotarians are selling tickets outside Renys Department Store on weekends, at Music on Main, at the fireworks on Sunday evening at Stevens Brook Elementary School, and the day of the race on Main Street.

At $5 each or $20 for five, Rotarians are able to raise about 30 percent of the funds needed for scholarships, community suppers, and other projects addressing the needs of veterans, children and the food insecure. Winners of the Duck Race receive prizes in the amount of $500, first prize; $250, second prize; and $100, third prize.
