The Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club hosted a “Shot” event on Aug. 31 at the Mountain Driving Range in Bridgton.

Open to all, the event included free buckets of balls and Street Eats appetizers, and a dozen Rotarians joined by 10 spouses and friends.

The event was a chance for golfers to hit some balls and for others to enjoy food and fellowship. It was a prelude for the 12th annual golf tournament at Bridgton Highlands Country Club set for Saturday, Sept. 16, a nice time was had by all.
