Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- October 3, 2014

Stringer Don Norris (the tall one) won a Boston Globe contest in early September, and was rewarded by having to throw out the first ceremonial pitch as the Red Sox face the Baltimore Orioles. From the left are former Melrose School Nurse Lorry Norris, their granddaughter Kathryn Klem and KK's partner Zach Robichard. Don's reward was four tickets that evening.
