A Visit to our Representative
Steve Trulli, owner of Whittemore's Hardware Store, was one of an army of people responding to the needs of the community during the May double-storm. When hundreds of local homes began taking on water, seeing a vital need, Steve traveled to the True Value Warehouse, Manchester, N.H. for 140 pumps. He was one of an army of volunteers and professionals struggling to save the city.

Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- June 2, 2006
Endless rain for fifteen days spelled major problems for the city's aging drainage system, causing evacuation of at least 700 homes and apartments, major flooding of many neighborhoods in the valley, and an assemblage of help and teamwork that has probably not been seen since World War II. The good news: The new middle school project was above it all.
