Atkinson Resort & Country Club Donates Over $25,000 to BGCL

June 12, 2017

Executive Director Markus Fischer (back row, far right) and youth members of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence accept a donation of $25,122.58 from Christine Lewis Morse, owner of the Atkinson Resort & Country Club (back row, third from left). The check represents proceeds from a recent customer appreciation day featuring discounts resort-wide, contests, and special events including an ice cream social for a dozen club kids. The event was held in memory of Morse's father, Atkinson Resort & Country Club founder Peter A. Lewis, who cared deeply about the club which provides more than 4,400 youth members with nightly meals, homework help, fitness and nutrition programs, college and career planning, and lasting personal relationships.
