Thank You for Coming to the Revere Beach Memorial

 Dear Editor:

The Revere Beach Memorial Planning Committee would like to thank the community for attending and supporting the 9th Annual Revere Beach Memorial. Every year this event grows as we work to remove stigma from both substance use disorders (SUDs) and the pain that is left behind when loved ones are lost. With every photo added to our memory wall, every story we hear, every candle lit and every bell that tolls as a name is read, Revere memorializes people who were more than their disease.

 Together this year we read the names of 198 sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, cousins, siblings, and friends. Though we hope someday this list stops growing, we thank all who submitted names so that we can remember together.

 As a committee we would also like to thank all who donated money to continue this annual event, particularly Michael DiGangi for his generous donation of $1,000 and the Recovery Thoughts group for their generous donation of $200. This money supports the event itself and also provides for scholarships to RHS students whose lives have been affected by SUDs, to local recovery homes, and to aid families in covering the cost of giving their loved ones a proper burial.

Welcome to the new Mayor

Dear Editor:

It is with great pride that we welcome Brian Arrigo as Revere’s newly elected mayor. We are ready for an administration that will bring professionalism, fiscal restraint, and innovative thinking to the City of Revere.

During Brian’s campaign, we met neighbors who became friends and friends who became family. When Brian and his wife, Daveen, knew they were expecting a baby during the campaign, little did they know that in addition to having their beautiful son, Joseph, they would also gain a multitude of new “family” members. Brian welcomed everyone into his home and his heart during his campaign. It was amazing to see the cross section of people that worked tirelessly to get him elected. His ability to join people together towards a common goal should be a blueprint for City Hall and the city as a whole.

Every Revere resident should know that they are welcome to join Team Arrigo. There is room for everyone to help Revere reach its full potential. Congratulations Brian and to all whom look forward to a bright future under your new administration.

Ricci and

Loretta LaCentra
