The Beachmont Improvement Committee (BIC) has an annual tree lighting in Cummings Park; this year they requested donations of coats to be brought to the event, which will be given to those in need of them at the Beachmont Middle School.
This event always brings out a large crowd of Beachmont residents and regular visitors from around the city. Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna was on hand to welcome all to her ward, as well as Revere School Committee Member John Kingston. The Revere Fire Department delivered the Old Elf himself, Santa and Mrs. Claus, with a special thank you to BIC President Kathleen Heiser and Dan Maguire for their role in getting Santa and Mrs. Claus to the event.
Candy canes were given to all the children, and all had a visit with Santa after the tree lighting.
