This Melrose Life could not let the 16th annual Melrose Street Fair pass by without documentation. So, we rented a booth, put out our magazine, and asked people what they thought about our community. Anyone who wished was handed a notecard, a marker, and a clothes pin. We had only one rule: “Tell us what you think about Melrose, or what you want to know.”
