The City of Revere honored veterans on Memorial Day this past Monday with the annual ceremony at McMackin Veterans Memorial Park (formerly known as American Legion lawn) on Broadway. RevereTV streamed the ceremony live on all outlets. The Revere Veterans Service Office hosted the event, which included an unveiling of memorialized bricks as part of a yearlong fundraiser for local veterans. This year’s guest speaker was US Marine, motivational speaker and author Andrew Biggio. The Memorial Day Ceremony is now replaying on the RevereTV Community Channel and can be watched on YouTube anytime.
The Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) kicked off summer early at Revere Beach last week.

RevereTV covered this press conference as it took place across from the Markey Bridge. To view footage from the event and learn more about water safety, watch in between programming on RTV GOV over the next few weeks. You can also watch the short video on RevereTV’s YouTube page.
