Hopedale Suffrage Club Is Formed and Plans Busy Season

    Hopedale, Nov. 16-The newly formed Hopedale Suffrage Club met Tuesday afternoon with Mrs.
    Herbert Shattuck and plans for the winter work were discussed and much interest manifested at the
    session.    Mrs. Mary Moore, a retired teacher from the Framingham Normal School, is president of the
    club, and Mrs. J.N. Nutter is secretary and treasurer.  Mrs. Cranston S. Thayer and Mrs. Proctor
    constitute a membership committee.   

    The club is to study citizenship and community interest, and work for the Red Cross.  Membership is
    not limited to suffragists, and anyone interested in the proposed line of study on the Red Cross is
    eligible, and may make application to the membership committee.

    The club proposes to hold a pre-Thanksgiving food sale in the store of H.L. Patrick.  Milford Daily

    Hopedale women were far more militant in the days of the Hopedale Community than they seem to
    have been in 1916. To read what Abby Hills Price had to say sixty-six years earlier at the Worcester
