ATKINSON — Atkinson Recreation is pleased to offer the following events in October.
Join over one-million community volunteers in America and participate in “Make a Difference Day”, the National Day of Doing Good, created by USA Weekend in partnership with the Points of Light Foundation. Volunteers will collect items to be dropped off at Atkinson Community Center on Sat., October 26, from 8:00-11:00 a.m. Donations will benefit Ruth’s House, Emmaus Inc. (Homeless shelter) and Family Promise of Greater Rockingham County (Homeless support program). Adult and young adult volunteer drivers are needed to help deliver the items to these locations. If you can help, please call Noriko at 362-5531.
Join your friends and fellow seniors from surrounding centers for a ghoulish good time on Thurs., October 31, from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the beautiful DiBurro’s function facility in Haverhill, MA. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes! The party will start with an hour of dancing, then the costume march, followed by dinner (choice of roasted sirloin of beef with mushroom gravy or baked haddock) served with fresh garden salad, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and butter, ice cream with chocolate sauce, coffee, tea, and decaf. Then back by popular demand, an exciting show by “The Bodacious Babes”. The cost is $23.00 per person for Atkinson seniors or $28.00 per person for non-residents, and includes dancing, dinner, show, and gratuities. Transportation is on your own.
