“Come On Down…Experience Senior Power”

Dear Editor

The Revere Office of Elder Affairs and the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center invites you to our Open House that will be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM. This uplifting event with the theme, “COME ON DOWN…EXPERIENCE SENIOR POWER”, will be a great opportunity for Revere seniors to learn about this fantastic, happening place that offers so much for our wonderful older Americans. All seniors – family, friends, and neighbors of seniors throughout the city are welcome to attend and enjoy this hospitable event at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center, 25 Winthrop Ave, Revere, MA!

Attendees will have a chance to meet our current senior participants, staff, Council on Elder Affairs, and see for yourself the safe, positive, fun, welcoming environment we provide our most prestigious and treasured citizens. Please let your senior family members, friends, and neighbors know about this exciting event so they can learn about Revere’s special place for seniors that is filled with incredible programs, services, activities, meals, and low-cost shuttle van transportation.

Ice cream sundaes, entertainment, music by DJ Steve “The Dude” Capano, drawings, and other fun activities will occur. Our last Open House, held Tuesday, May 17th, 2016, was very successful and affirmed a revitalized, re-energized, and renewed effort by both Mayor Arrigo’s and the Elder Affairs Department’s commitment to seniors. Come by and say hello to old friends, meet new friends, meet the staff and Council on Elder Affairs of the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center, and learn about the programs, services, activities, meals program, and low-cost shuttle van transportation and the city’s dedication to Revere seniors.

Since July, 2013 the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center has increased programming for the senior population in Revere. The Senior Center continues an ongoing, aggressive outreach initiative in order serve Revere seniors at this safe, positive, welcoming, fun environment. This Open House is another chance for senior residents to learn about the exciting programs, activities, and services at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center, and how the entire staff works to serve the needs of the senior population.

The Revere Office of Elder Affairs and Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center continues to reshape, re-invigorate, and re-evaluate our offering of excellent programs, services and activities for seniors to the best of our ability. We have strived to become a welcoming and inviting Senior Center, embedded and passionately involved in the Revere community, and in the lives of senior we serve each day.

Over the last four years we have really changed the culture and perception of the Revere Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center. The senior population is the largest, single, and fastest-growing segment of Revere. As of the last census, 2010, the number of seniors (over 60 years old) in Revere was 10,164. We are sure it’s close to 15,000 by now. We serve approximately 20% of them and our participants are growing each day.

We hope you can make it and are certain that you will be greeted warmly and have a pleasant experience.


Stephen W. Fielding

Director, Revere Office Elder Affairs, Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center


Thank you for tribute

Dear Editor,

I would like to publicly thank Mayor Brian Arrigo and his staff for organizing the wonderful tribute bestowed upon me for my years of dedication, service and love for the City of Revere. The Mayor’s office was filled with current city officials, their presence meant the world to me and something I will never forget. A special thank you to House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Representative RoseLee Vincent and former Representative Kathi Reinstein. I was overwhelmed at the thought that all these people took time out of their busy schedules to attend. I would also like to acknowledge and thank all the former Mayors and city officials I have had the pleasure and honor to serve with during my service for our wonderful city. I am also grateful and blessed by St. Mary’s Church under the guidance of Father Barry and his wonderful staff.

A very heartfelt thanks to my loving family which included my wonderful children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, loving niece and my amazing cousins who have been there for me my entire life. My life has been blessed more than I can say.

I also need to convey a special Thank you to Debbie (Cammarata) DiGregorio and her wonderful staff at the Revere Journal and all the work they do to keep us informed and up to date regarding this great city of ours. Their reporting of this wonderful event will never be forgotten.

Mayor Arrigo once again thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Keep Revere moving forward.


Vincent F. Cammarata
