This is the earliest mention of Boy
Scouts in Hopedale that I've seen.
The Drapers were very much opposed to any New Deal
programs. This is the only mention of any connection to
one in Hopedale that I've seen. It was a minor one, and
everybody is against mosquitoes, so evidently they
were willing to put up with it.
Thanks to Phyllis Foley and Matt Dykhoff for these pages
from the original charter for Troop 1, Hopedale.
Evidently Leonard had replaced Dennett
because Dennett had gone into the Army.
