Atkinson Women's Civic Club

celebrating community service

The Atkinson Women’s Civic Club was formed in the fall of 1974 and held its first official meeting in January 1975.  We were organized to help serve the town of Atkinson with volunteer and financial assistance.  Today, the club is almost 30 women strong and we are still pursuing the original goals:  to help our community through volunteer and civic activities.

What's Going On?

We are helping to paint the town yellow as part of the 250th Anniversary celebration coming up in 2017.  Tomorrow is Make A Difference Day and volunteers from the AWCC will be planting hundreds of daffodils at the Community Center on Main Street so that there will be a beautiful splash of yellow to represent our participation in the project next Spring.  Around town, many volunteers from various clubs including the Lions Club and the Atkinson Garden Club will be planting hundreds of bulbs to help celebrate with a splash of yellow in the Spring.  The Garden Club held a fundraiser recently selling the bulbs so many residents will be planting on their own properties as well.

The AWCC would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the residents who supported our recent fundraiser by registering and participating in the the Fall Town Wide Yard Sale on Saturday, September 24th.  The event was a great success with 70 homes participating and lots of traffic flowing through town providing the shoppers.   Many residents donated unsold items to SAVERS in Plaistow for an added benefit to the fundraiser.  The proceeds from this event are given back to the community through various programs.
We would also like to thank the Boy Scouts of Troop 95 that helped us by transporting the donated books from  the Library to our Got Books bin at the Community Center.  The Library holds a book sale twice per year during the yard sale event and then donates the remaining books to the AWCC.  Thanks to the Town Library for their generosity.  Together, we can make a difference.

Our next monthly meeting is on Thursday, October 6th. The meeting will be held at an Atkinson residence and will begin at 7:15pm.  We are hosting a Membership Drive that evening so there will be lots of new faces attending and that always proves to be a fun meet and greet. 
Please contact for location information if you would like to join us.
