AIM wants to THANK YOU!!!

AIM would like to thank everyone who helped make our 2nd Annual Wine Tasting a great success. The event was held April 2nd at the Atkins Legion Hall. Tracey Cahill from Global Wines was present to talk about the nine different wines that were being showcased. After the wine tasting session, 21 delicious desserts were auctioned off by Dan Kaestner and the Kaestner Team.

Because of your support we are $3,500 closer to completing the kitchen and building permanent restrooms at the Atkins Soccer Park.

Like us on Facebook and/or watch this newsletter for details of several upcoming events AIM is planning for 2016.

If you would like to join us, we would love to have you! We meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month @ 7pm at City Hall.
