For nearly 30 years, one Melrose man has been opening his Thanksgiving table to complete strangers based on one simple belief: no one should be alone for the holidays.

In 1985, Scott Macaulay's parents divorced, and he worried about where he would spend Thanksgiving. So he took an add out in the local paper, the Melrose Free Press, offering to cook Thanksgiving dinner for 12 people. Since then, dozens of people have flocked to Macaulay's Thanksgiving table at the First Baptist Church in Melrose.


Scott Macaulay, owner of Macaulay's House of Vacuum Cleaners and host of a Thanksgiving dinner at the First Baptist Church in Melrose.
