The Revere High School Football season officially begins tonight! Watch live as the Revere Patriots take on the Peabody Tanners at Peabody. RevereTV will be streaming the game live on all outlets at 7 p.m. If you miss the game coverage, replays will be scheduled on the RevereTV Community Channel. Games will be uploaded to this year’s football playlist on RTV’s YouTube channel. RevereTV is covering all games this year.
“In the Loop” by RevereTV and the City of Revere highlighted a few upcoming events to prepare for. The first was a toiletry drive in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11. The drive ended last week, but every donation given was to honor and support troops and veterans. Donations received went to the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund, where volunteers will make care packages for the troops and veterans.
In light of Labor Day, “In the Loop” promoted the annual Touch-A-Truck event, which will take place on Sunday, September 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Suffolk Downs. Walk along the track for an up-close view of tractors, police cars, fire engines and more! Enjoy kids’ activities, games, giveaways and food. This event is free and open to the public; however, registration is recommended. You can watch “In the Loop” in between programming on RevereTV, on YouTube and on Facebook. The PSAs are posted every week in four languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.
RevereTV covered the Annual Revere Overdose Memorial last Wednesday. This candlelight vigil was held at Leach Park as the names of Revere residents lost to drug and alcohol were read aloud. The memorial was held by the City of Revere’s Substance Use Disorder and Homeless Initiatives (SUDHI) Office as it is every year, but the annual event was merged with the Revere Beach Memorial that usually commemorates International Overdose Awareness Day. RevereTV has video coverage of the entire memorial, which you can now watch on RTV GOV or YouTube at any time.
Also on RTV GOV, you can watch the latest municipal meetings. This week includes the Conservation Commission and the Cultural Council. The next City Council Meeting is this upcoming Monday, September 12 at 6:00 p.m., preceded by the Zoning Board and Appointments Sub-Committee Meeting. RTV GOV is channel 9 on Comcast and 13 or 613 on RCN. All Monday meetings that involve the City Council are available for Spanish translation live on YouTube.
