Revere Fire Department Local 926 has sponsored a volleyball tournament on Revere Beach for several years, and has always been a success. This year’s was no exception, only in the fact of a much bigger crowd of supporters both on the sand and on the wall.

President of 926 and the host Kevin O’Hara does a great job, covering all aspects of the tournament. Gathering donations and getting teams together and working out a schedule is no light task. A special thanks to Bill Ash’s Lounge on the beach, Speaker of the House Bob DeLeo and Mayor Brian Arrigo for their continued support of this great cause, instilling fellowship between surrounding cities and raising funds for a wonderful cause.

The Beach Citi Buzz

August greetings, friends, and welcome to the Beach City BUZZ. Today we’re having fun with words. Yes, I am a writer (although some would argue that point), so I love anything to do with grammar and to me, it’s F-U-N. Come play along. Palindromes – words and phrases that are spelled alike, backwards and forwards. Check these out: kayak; tons o’ snot; race car; now I won; we sew; boob; won’t it now; level; campus motto – bottoms up, Mac; Name not one man; top spot; a nut for a jar of tuna; Ma has a ham; bursitis rub; rotator; civic; pot top; noon; Was it a cat I saw?; wontons; not now; Oh, no! Don Ho!; sex at noon taxes; too hot to hoot; Lager, sir, is regal; evil olive – and my favorite: a toyota’s a toyota … Now for some funny anagrams – these are words which, when you mix up all the letters, spell out some similar and often humorous definitions: Mother-in-law: woman Hitler; the earthquakes: that queer shake; conversation: voices rant on; debit card: bad credit; slot machines: cash lost in ’em; the eyes: they see; schoolmaster: the classroom; dormitory: dirty room; the Morse code: here come dots; snooze alarms: Alas! No more Zs; a decimal point: I’m a dot in place; astronomer: moon starer; the hurricanes: these churn air … Finally, here’s a cute little verse cautioning us about the many reasons not to rely on our computer’s spell checker: Eye halve a spelling chequer, It came with my pea sea, It plainly marks for my revue, Miss Steaks I kin knot sea. Eye strike a quay and type a word, And weight four it two say, Weather aye am wrong oar write, It shows me strait a weigh. As soon as a mist ache is maid, It nose bee for two long, And I can put the error rite. Its rarely ever wrong. Aye have run this poem write threw it. Eye am shore yore pleased too no, Its letter perfect in it’s weigh. My chequer tolled me sew … That’s enough fun for won day. Here’s the BUZZ: Revere’s Broadway Block Party, which was originally being held on July 29, has been rescheduled for August 20 from 12:00-4:00 p.m. Mark your calendars and plan to attend and support small businesses in the area of Broadway and Park Avenue. New signage will be unveiled and there’s live entertainment beginning at 1:00 p.m., as well as a photo booth, demonstrations and more.

Sign-ups are at the Marina at the Wharf Restaurant (by August 6), with an awards ceremony and party after the race, prizes, raffles, DJ/music and lots of fun for everyone. Opening ceremony and race begin at 7:15 a.m. For more info, call 617-610-6366 or visit their FaceBook page, Row row row in Revere. Donations may also be made at the Wharf Restaurant. Thank you to all who are doing this for kids and their families in the Beach City. Proceeds will benefit those who are in need of services, such as interventions and therapies that are not always covered by insurance. So many families today face the challenges associated with autism. Our own BUZZ family knows firsthand, and we cannot give enough praise and credit to the people who are supporting these kids and their loved ones. Help if you can, donate or just be there to say thanks and cheer everyone on … The Revere Recreation Dept. is heading to Six Flags in Springfield for their Friday Field Trip on August 12, and you’re invited! Lunch will be provided, kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone, and Coach bus transportation will be provided. It’s $55 per person, and the trip is from 8:00 a.m. til 9:00 p.m. for an entire day of fun. Call 781-286-8190 or visit www.revererec.org for more info … Breaking news! It was just announced that yet another black widow spider was found in a bag of grapes from the supermarket. Well, that settles it for me – another great reason not to be a vegetarian. Serves you right for trying to eat healthy. You never find spiders in a package of bacon! … That’s it for the BUZZ, BUZZers. Do whatever makes your heart sing, and remember: Be careful when you blindly follow the masses. Sometimes the “M” is silent … This week’s SMILEMAKERS: Diane Hanley, Lisa Mignosa, Gabriella DeLorenzo, Richard Anderson, Anthony Alba, Melissa Diaz, Marie Nichols, David Leary, Tong Shen, Robert Geary, Julie Lania, Jean Ellswoth, Danielle Fortuna, Jim Mosca, Jeff Gotham, Mary Feeley, Nick Stevens, Jill Morris, Julius Quintana and Sal DeAngelis … Here’s the CHUCKLE (from one of our favorite BUZZettes, Ann Onymous): After 10 years of marriage, the wife starts to think their kid looks kind of strange. So she decides to do a DNA test. She is totally astounded when she finds out that the kid is actually from completely different parents. Wife: “Honey, I have something very serious to tell you.” Husband: “What’s up?” Wife: “According to the DNA test results, this is not our child!” Husband: “Well, don’t you remember? When we were leaving the hospital, we noticed that our baby had pooped. You said, ‘Please go change the baby, I’ll wait for you here.’ So I went inside, left the dirty one there and got a clean one.” Moral: Never give a man a job that doesn’t belong to him … Got comments? Jokes? News? Suggestions? Want to congratulate someone on their anniversary, birthday, baby or divorce? Is your group running a fundraiser, meeting, yard sale or event? This is International Clown Week. Funny we should know that, but we’re not joking. Don’t be a Bozo … It would be a nice jester if you would send your BUZZbits to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
