Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- December 7, 2001

'TIS CHRISTMAS: Only a stone's throw from Melrose's west side is one of the most popular year round spots in Greater Boston, the Stone Zoo in, yes, Stoneham. But at this holiday period, the grounds come alive with lights, a merry-go-round, and a veritable frosty playground of animated and for-real furry friends. And children can have a tete-a-tete with jolly ol' Saint Nick--right here in New England's winter deep freeze. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and we wish you all a healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year. The SilverStringers.
