Community Comes Together for Fourth Annual Coffee House

The talents of Melrose were on full display on Sunday, March 19, when we held our 4th Annual Community Coffee House!  This event, called “Voices Against Violence,” featured performances by community members and Melrose students and teachers, centered around the themes of friendship, love, and relationships.

The Coffee House was organized by Melrose High School students Tess Castergine, Rachel Freed and Keith Morris, and featured show-stopping performances by local musician Bill McQuaid and his son Sammy, Melrose resident Kris Rodilico, Rebecca Zama and more. Check out the highlights from the day on MAAV’s YouTube channel!

A huge thank you to La QChara, My Diner, Petrone’s Pizza, and Starbucks for donating food and beverages for this event!
