Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- December 3, 2010

Here's a SilverStringer member since the early years of this MIT-sponsored Melrose Mirror, who holds two part-time jobs, and still finds time for four daughters -- and for photographing kids during the Chamber's Halloween Bash. Thing is, she does it with expertise, making full use of that rather sophisticated camera hanging around her neck. Her name is Louise Fennell, and she's an editor of the Melrose Mirror.
