Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- July 6, 2007

It was a run of the mill assignment: Shoot the Fourth of July celebration in town, which means dropping in at the Melrose Savings Bank -- Oooops, now it's the MassBank -- and photographing the Wakefield Retired Men's Club Band, its audience singing patriotic songs. This small gem of a shot was put aside only to be rediscovered while going through the Stringers images folder. Actually it was shot on July 3, four years ago. A nice thought, a good photo.
