---- — AWCC Thanks Sponsors
The Atkinson Woman’s Civic Club would like to thank the community for its help, support and donations, as we are proud to announce that our 2012-2013 fundraising events netted - $12,000. Such events included: Fall and Spring Town Yard Sales, Summer and Winter Farmers’Markets, Town Deliberation Lunch, Atkinson Photo Show, the AWCC Cookbook, bus tour to the Newport Flower Show, and the annual Golf Tournament. With these funds, the AWCC was able to help the Atkinson and Timberlane communities with donations to: Atkinson Historical Society, Family Mediation, Sad Café, the Owl Patch Garden at Timberlane Regional High School (TRHS), TRHS Substance Abuse Prevention, Kimball Public Library, Atkinson Recreation/Community Center, and Timberlane Scholarships to seniors for college. The AWCC also continued the Adopt-a-Family programs in which dozens of families who might not have had a joyous holiday received presents and baskets at Christmas and Easter.
In addition, the AWCC sponsored many Civic functions throughout the year. These included three Senior Luncheons with Atkinson Recreation, Cookie Decorating at the Atkinson Tree Lighting, Bike Decorating Contest at the Memorial Day Parade, Atkinson Scouting gifts, and the Fishing Derby.
We give thanks to the following groups, organizations, and individuals for their support this past year. Our special appreciation goes to the Bourdelais family whose very generous partnership enables the provision of toys and clothing to youngsters in Atkinson who might otherwise have a gift less Christmas. In addition, we give many thanks to Freshwater Farms -- wonderful hosts of the most successful Atkinson Farmer’s Market.
