Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- September 2, 2011

It was a beautiful summer day at the Melrose Beebe Estate gardens, perfect for Joanne Frey's art class at the Milano Center. Council on Aging Director Dawn Filopoulos happened by, sporting her digital camera, and snapped this lovely photo of students Arlene Stanton (at left) and Rita Pesaturo.
