JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

For my section this week, some photos of my most recent visit to the USS Salem. The Salem is a heavy cruiser that is a museum ship in Quincy, Mass. It's a great take in and I have been to the ship many times. I have some great memories of going to the ship with my late father, who served on the sister ship, USS Des Moines.

Also, Stoneham Firefighter Dan Kelleher is running the New York City Marathon for the Muscular Dystrophy Assciation. He is selling raffle tickets as part of the fundraising. The cost is $5 per ticket and the winner receives $300 in scratch tickets. To purchase raffle tickets, you can call or text Dan at 781-775-5933.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
