The award is presented to an outstanding member of the community who represents altruism, is actively engaged in bettering their community and has provided philanthropic support to the Kennebec Valley Community.

“Jim has a long standing history with the KV YMCA. He is instrumental to the vitality of Camp KV for Kids and his passion for providing children with a safe, nurturing, fun summer experience is unparalleled. We are thankful for every contribution Jim has made and are proud to honor him with the 11th John Bridge Award.” Ranae L’Italien, KV YMCA Associate Executive Director.

The John Bridge Award began in 2009 with John Bridge as the first recipient in honor of his leadership in the Kennebec Valley YMCA’s Capital Campaign and many other organizations such as United Way of Kennebec Valley, University of Maine and MaineGeneral Health.
