Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- June 5, 2015

Stringer Debbi Collar's photo of the late Hilltop restaurant has a special meaning for most of us who live in Melrose -- and enjoyed many good meals at that famous place over the years. It's gone now. What will replace it remains a mystery -- until the new developer decides what he wants to build there. Odds on, it'll be a small commericial complex with yet another restaurant.
