I'm not sure which article you are referring to, but I'll assume it mentioned the Wakefield Retired Men's Club Band.

You can go to their website at:

If you click on Join the Band, you can find the phone for Dan Nager, who can explain everything.

I play in it myself. Even your dad will have to give way to George Angrisano of Revere, who turned 100 in February. He played sax and clarinet in the band up to about a year or so ago.

Truly enjoyed your article. Your Melrose web site address was given to
me by Polly Morton's daughter who is visiting Las Vegas this weekend
(in 115+ temperatures by the way.) Really great what you people have
accomplished on this web site. Thank you all. Send us some cooler
