Community Response Network Meeting Highlights City’s Summer Activities

The latest meeting of the Revere’s Community Response Network, which includes a number of city leaders, on Monday highlighted a number of upcoming events and important dates.

Assistant Superintendent of Schools Richard Gallucci noted that the school district’s 2024-25 school year calendar is now available online, showing a first day of school for staff on Monday, August 26 and the first day for students on Tuesday, August 27.

Gallucci added that the summer school programs at all of the district’s schools are also up and running.

The first of the city’s farmers’ markets is scheduled for Friday, July 26. The market runs on Fridays through September from noon to 4 p.m. and will be held near Waterfront Square.

This Friday, July 12, the city will be hosting a community liaison resource day in the city hall parking lot from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Public Health Director Lauren Buck said there will be about two dozen tables from various community organizations and departments, as well as treats and activities for kids.

Buck said the city has also stated its summer cooling stations on the American Legion lawn next to city hall this week, partnering with Summer Eats. Those cooling stations will feature misting fans, sunscreen, and water and will run from Mondays through Thursdays for at least the next month.

Claudia Correa, Mayor Patrick Keefe’s Chief of Staff, said the city’s Haas Health and Wellness Center is beginning a series of outdoor classes at Della Russo Stadium. Anyone with a Haas Center membership will be able to take the classes for free, and there will be a fee for non-members, she said.

In addition, the city is launching a month-long volleyball tournament for 9- to 12- year-olds in partnership with the Revere Beach Partnership beginning this week.

Senior Center Director Debbie DiGiulio said applications for the senior abatement tax write-off program are now available at the senior center and online. The applications need to be submitted by August 1.

In addition, the senior center will be hosting an informational session on city water abatement programs on Thursday, July 25 at 10:30 a.m., she said.

City Election Commissioner Paul Fahey said his department is still accepting applications for poll workers for the upcoming state primary and general elections.

Fahey also urged any residents with questions about early voting or mail-in voting for the upcoming elections to contact his office.
