Atkinson Lions Club Steps Up to Help Lead the Learning in the Fight Against Addiction

Through a generous donation from our community and in partnership with our school district, Timberlane High School students will hear an authentic message that may be one of the most important they ever hear during their four years at Timberlane. On December 23rd, Mr. Chuck Rosa will present “Chucky’s Fight”, a personal and compelling journey of struggle and resilience around substance abuse.   Four grade level presentations will be held throughout the day to help educate students on making positive decisions in their life.   Mr. Rosa will share his story of struggle with substance abuse and the loss of his two sons to addiction, and how his journey to sobriety has turned into a message of hope. In January, Chucky’s Fight will return to our campus for presentations to our grade 7 and 8 students.

We wish to thank the Atkinson Lions Club President Neil Hamel, members Dick Magoon and Greg Spero who spearheaded this initiative, as well as the club’s membership for their generous commitment and willingness to support our youth. It is organizations like the Atkinson Lions Club who understand and value the work necessary to bind our communities together while providing the very best opportunities for our students.

It is also important to note the great work of the District’s Wellness Committee, co-chaired by Sue Sherman and Susan Rasicot for their part in this endeavor which affirms the committee’s mission to promote a healthy environment in our schools and communities.
