Frank Polito received an early Father’s Day present from the Atkinson Lions Club and the Town of Atkinson.
The Lions selected Mr. Polito unanimously from a long list of contenders.
He is a former Atkinson Selectman, town moderator, and zoning board chairman.
An open house and reception was held in his honor at the Atkinson Community Center, where he was presented with many local and state awards.
