Letter to the Editor

Thanks to all who helped the Shamrock Splash

Dear Editor:

The Revere Beach Partnership is most grateful to all of the plungers and spectators who came to Revere Beach on March 6th to support us at our fund raising event, the Shamrock Splash.  This fundraiser benefits the non-profit “Save the Harbor/Save the Bay”.  The money raised from this activity will be used by the Revere Beach Partnership to fund events on Revere Beach.

Special thanks goes to the following:

Kelly’s for providing hot cocoa, coffee, and clam chowder after the event.  It certainly was the perfect antidote to a cold dip. Kelly’s is one of the most generous businesses in Revere and is always supportive of the many activities that take place in and for Revere.  Kudos to John Barry, Kelly’s manager, and the members of his crew who joined us in the very cold water!

Revere Fire Department for providing the measure of safety necessary in an event such as this.  The Revere Fire Department and its Chief Gene Doherty are the consummate professionals and the city is extremely proud of them.

DCR, our partner at Revere Beach, for always making sure that the beach is ready for any event that we may sponsor.  A special thanks goes to Brian Kelly, the manager of Revere Beach, for his efforts on our behalf.

Revere TV for taping the event.  This added coverage will hopefully provide an incentive for more participation in this event next year.  Revere TV, under the auspices of Bob Dunbar, is always willing to provide coverage for local events and that is most appreciated.

The Army JROTC students from Revere High School for providing the gauntlet through which the plungers ran for the plunge and for participating in the Plunge.  The Commander of this group, Major Bowker, is to be commended for shaping this group of students into a cohesive, disciplined unit that contributes so much to the city of Revere and provides a fine example of the student population at Revere High School.  The entire city is proud of the RHS JROTC.

Special Helpers Erin Lynch and Kaitlyn Montagna of FMP Productions for their assistance for this event.  They are the consummate professionals whose expertise assures that any event will be done well.
