Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- October 5, 2012

The SilverStringers, publishers of the Melrose Mirror for the past sixteen years, have spread their wings to form a new Video graphic team, joined the local TV station, and are already in production of their second show. At the left is the key videographer Tom Dillon, crew chief Louise Fennell and continuity person Rita Mucera. While the new connection to MMTV will be a busy one, the electronic Melrose Mirror will continue to be published monthly.
