Each year until three years ago, the Doctors entertained the elderly people of Maynard, who would otherwise be alone, at a Christmas dinner in their.home often serving as many as 36 men and women. And many Christmas baskets were filled with goodies from their kitchen for those unable to attend. It is not unusual to hear of some thoughtful deed done by them in a quiet unassuming way. Dr. C. C.
