The Hartley Boy Scout troop had its own club room located under Potter’s Drug Store. Plans were made by the boys to decorate and fix up their quarters, where meetings were held each Monday night.
Manuel Strom, of Hartley, retiring county supervisor, was among outgoing county officers entertained at a reception at Primghar. He was presented with a gift as a tribute to his service to the county.
Receipts from two town basketball games were donated to a recreation fund. The $100 was to start a fund which would provide a regular recreation program for Hartley youngsters.
