Dear Editor,

Animal Umbrella, a strictly no kill cat shelter was located in Revere for 14 years, until lour landlord decided to repurpose the building we were in. Unfortunately, after more than six months of searching we were unable to find a new location in Revere to continue our shelter.

We saved innumerable cats and helped many citizens of Revere during our fourteen years and, most importantly, want to let Revered citizens know that we are still willing and able to assist from our new location in Peabody. We have always rescued from the entire North Shore and will continue to do so.

We are concerned that people in Revere may think that we simply closed and ceased, and want to make certain that they know we have simply relocated.

We are not at 150 R Main St. in Peabody but people who need assistance with the rescue and care of abandoned cats can certainly still contact our president, Annamarie, at 508-877-1194.

WE would be so grateful if you could possibly run a small article to let our Revere friends know that we still care about helping them and want to continue to be of service to them as we were for fourteen years.

If you have questions, you can contact Annamarie at the phone number above.

Linda Lachman, Secretary-Treasurer



Dear Revere Public School Community,

On Monday, the hallways of Revere Schools will go from quiet to hustle and bustle, as our community’s children head back to school. While it is sad to see beach bags get replaced by back packs, there is a sense of excitement in the community about the promise a new school year will bring.

As a candidate for the Revere School Committee and as the only candidate with children enrolled in the school system, the excitement is two- fold.  My wife Danielle and I are excited to see our kids—Gerry, Jr., Sofia, Sabrina and Joseph—learn new things, meet new friends and reconnect with previous classmates. As a candidate for Revere School Committee, the start of school coincides with what I hope will be an honest and transparent conversation about where we can improve the educational experience for our children and families.

Before the school bell rings, I want to wish all of the school children and faculty the best of luck this academic year. I encourage you to learn, explore and soak in all of what our great schools and talented teachers have in store for you.

Gerry Visconti

Candidate for Revere School Committee
