Wayne Schweitzer, right, and other children under the supervision of nurse Eloise Malady gather in the new playroom in the pediatrics ward at Watertowns House of the Good Samaritan in this photo printed in the Times on Christmas Eve, 1962. The playroom was part of a two-story addition to the pediatrics and dietary departments. Nine-year-old Wayne, of Brownville, was recovering from abdominal wounds incurred in an accidental shooting the day after Thanksgiving. An older brother, Ronald, was preparing for the two to go out hunting raccoons when his rifle accidentally discharged. The photo was submitted by Reg Schweitzer.
