Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- July 5, 2002

ANNIVERSARY TIME again, as the SilverStringers mark the end of their sixth year of being together, of publishing the electronic hometown newspaper call the Melrose Mirror, and their ties to the Media Lab at MIT. "It has been a great run," charter member Kay McCarte said, "and we look forward to new challenges, new programs, new agendas. It has been a grand course. Individually and as a group, we are miles ahead in the game of life." Further the Stringers named veteran member Virginia Hanley (center, seated) as "SilverStringer of the Year".
