To the editor:
I knew I had to get a dumpster to clean up my house and garage after years of living here in Hopkinton. I had no idea how I was going to get this accomplished. I needed to find a few bodies with muscles to help me get this done. My neighbor suggested asking the Boy Scouts in Hopkinton. So I did just that and called a scoutmaster. He said they would be delighted to help out.
We settled on a date to get together, and lo and behold, about six young men showed up with two adult assistant scoutmasters. They went right to work and carried furniture, articles, a large rug, a twin bed, a heavy office desk from the house. They nearly cleaned and swept the whole two-car garage for me. The boys were wonderful and very polite and ready to work in an instant when asked to do something by the assistant scoutmasters. They filled that dumpster in just under two hours. The Hopkinton Scouts are terrific!
