Letter to the Editor: Veteran thankful for Scouts’ gesture

by | Nov 25, 2022 | Letter to Editor

My unexpected and greatly appreciated act of kindness this Thanksgiving was the gift of an Out Post Farm apple pie from the Troop 11 Scouts. The woman who delivered the pie stated that the Scouts raised money  and wanted to share a pie with veterans and seniors. The Scouts in Hopkinton do a wonderful service in supporting veterans’ activities each Memorial Day and Veterans Day. I know that Scouting was an important part of the raising of my daughters in Hopkinton. I am thankful that the current generation is having this Scouting experience and for all the Scout leaders who give of their time to instill good values in our youth.

— Ken Weismantel, Hopkinton
