  • This interview includes the following topics: In 1962, the Stoneham Jaycees, a local community service organization determined the need for what was then called a Boys' Club. Fundraising began, committees were established and a $100,00 Hayden Foundation Grant was obtained. Official documents established the Boys' Club on January 22, 1965. The 1969 Town Meeting deeded land on Dale Court to the Club for $1. On April 25, 1970, the ground breaking ceremony occurred in Recreation Park. This was given to the Club as a memorial to WWII veterans. The Club was completed and dedicated in 1973. Cameron Bain was the first President.
