Melrosians are urged to take part in the revitalized Memorial Day Ceremonies on Sunday, May 28th by cheering on our veterans as they march to Wyoming Cemetery. In fact, Mayor Rob Dolan and his committee even suggest that we civilians join the walk, which begins assembling at Memorial Hall at 12:30 p.m. It is all part of our country's renewed sense of patriotism and sensibilities. And if you can't march, then stand by on the curb and cheer those men and women who have fought to give us this, another glorious day.

Len Dalton, probably, is the only person associated with the SilverStringers who gets up before the sun. Which is lucky for us, for how else would we get such startling photographs of How an Earth Day Begins? His latest work is five frames long, and represents his time spent with his new Panasonic digital camera along the ridge of our renowned (300-foot high) Mount Hood, at dawn. (This photo is linked to his brief dissertation).

Publisher for this issue is Jim Driscoll
