MAHOPAC, N.Y. – Dr. Rick Bridgham of Bridgham Barr Orthodontics in Somers was honored by the Somers Chamber of Commerce on June 7 at that organization’s Citizen of the Year Dinner at Villa Barone in Mahopac.

But it wasn’t only the chamber that seemed to agree with the designation. Dozens of Bridgham’s fellow Lions Club members came out to celebrate, and Bridgham was awarded with proclamations from the state, county and town. Both the county and town designated June 8 as Rick Bridgham Day in Westchester County and the town of Somers, respectively.
