Current News and Upcoming Events!
Attention Atkinson residents. Please join Atkinson Recreation Commission sponsored “Town Beautification Week ~ let’s clean up our roads and Streets!” from Saturday, April 22nd – “Earth Day” to Sunday, April 30th. You can pick your day and time your family can participate during the time. Most of main roads in our town will be taken care of by State and Town Departments so your focus is your neighborhood side streets, or we can suggest the public area.
