Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- Septeber 5, 2003

EVERY SO OFTEN the Stringers feel the need for more recipes, and this is the issue, in fact we considered makint it law that writers submit samples of their work--the goodies--before being accepted for publication. It worked with Phyllis Fewtrell, one of the newer members who provided the whole crew with a chocolate cake on a recent Wednesday. And {above} this is what we look like during the taste-test. That's Natalie Thomson and Russ Priestley carrying on during the business meeting. Check out the seven submissions below, in a special section entitled, simply New/Old Recipes.
