Hopedale Suffrage Club Is Formed and Plans Busy Season
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
