---- — Welcome Atkinson Seniors
I would like to take this opportunity to advise our seniors what the Atkinson Senior Fund can do for them. I must make it very clear that our Senior Fund is not in any way connected to any town agency, or any other donation accounts that are being started by the town. We stand as a completely self-governed fund. All funds that come in to the Atkinson Senior Fund (ASF) are handled by myself as President and the Board of Directors. We have changed our name so that it is not in conflict with the Town’s Police Department or any part of town government.
We are here to help any Atkinson Senior that needs assistance. We will not ask you to fill out a 10 to 15 page financial report. If you need a helping hand to get over a temporary shortfall, we can help. We are not a charitable organization; we are a group of Atkinson residents helping out our neighbors.
As the President of this fund I am trying to get our program up and running like it was at the first of the year. We are not involved with any aspect of the transportation services that are provide by the town.
If you need some minor household repairs or special medical equipment we are there to help provide this type of service. I am in the process of re-doing the Senior Contractors list. We are also trying to find some one that can help us set up a web site. If we accomplish that task than the contractors list will be posted on that site, in the mean time once the list has been up-dated you will be able to pick up a copy at the community center or just give me a call and I will mail out a copy to your home.
If you find that you are having a problem and need some assistance I will be more than willing to look into your situation. If I cannot resolve your problem I have the resources that would be able to assist you in your time of need. All calls to my home (603-362-5627) are kept in the strictest of confidence. If I am not home just leave your name and phone number and either myself or my wife Jody will get right back to you. Please do not hesitate to give me a call if you or a senior that you know, can use our assistance.
Our objective has not changed, and that is no senior in Atkinson should go without life’s basic needs. I have been a strong advocate in making sure our seniors are well taken care of, and I will always be there to lend a kind and thought full hand and assist them in any way I can.
Phil (Chief) Consentino, President
