The annual Melrose Arts and Cultural Association(MACA) art show at Memorial Hall boosts the cultural attributes of our city. This classy show attracts many of the best artists from Eastern Massachusetts, and presents their work in an elegant, historical showplace. Enjoying this year's art show, Carol Horner (right) of Virginia came to Melrose to visit her granddaughter's folks. With her are Rebecca Webb and friend Lauren, both of Melrose.
