Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- July 5, 2013
The SilverStringers were formed in Melrose in 1996, at the request of the Media Lab at MIT. At that time, computers were a new device and very few actually owned one. In the meantime, several grad students and faculty designed a program for an electronic newspaper to appear on the new internet. Its purpose was to have communities around the world communicating, each with its own electronic newspaper. The Media Lab program was to last two years, but when that time came, Melrose -- the key group -- refused to quit. Currently thre are some 16 active Stringers, all of whom either live in town or grew up here. Photographed recently, from the left, are Don Norris, Betty Rossi. Flo Shea, Advisor Jack Driscoll (now retired from the Boston Globe), Louise Fennell and Joe Sullivan. Our loose membership includes, currently active, Shirley Rabb, Kay McCarte, Carol Nelson, Ed Boyd, Ann Talbot, Joan Alcala, John Averell, Jerry Norton, Steve Johnson and Tom Dillon. Weekly meetings are held Wednesdays at 1:30 at the Milano Senior Center, and membership remains open.
