Friends:  I am sorry to report that the birding community has lost a
wonderful member.  John Maynard died early this morning, peacefully,
following a fall and a serious surgery.  His service will be at Church of
the Holy Trinity, 381 Main Street, Middletown on this coming Saturday the
13th at 11:00 a.m.   A reception will follow at the church and then
interment at Indian Hill Cemetery in Middletown.  The obituary should
appear in the Hartford Courant tomorrow.  Many of us have enjoyed birding
with John over the years and will miss him.

Priest in Charge, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Middletown CT

*Just a hurried line...to tell a story which puts the contrast between our
feast of the Nativity and all this ghastly "Xmas" racket at its lowest. My
brother heard a woman on a bus say, as the bus passed a church with a Crib
outside it, "Oh Lor'! They bring religion into everything. Look - they're
dragging it even into Christmas now!"*               ~ C.S. Lewis, Letters
to an American Lady, Dec. 29, 1958, p80
