Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022 RevereTV Spotlight I t’s been a long week spent at Revere Beach for RevereTV! The International Sand Sculpting Festival was back this summer and went off without a hitch. This event is most closely followed and covered by RevereTV every year. The studio provided daily updates of the preparation and competition on social media, which were strung together to create a total video update playing on television. Throughout the next few weeks, coverage from this year’s festival will be playing on the Community Channel. You can view all sand sculpting footage from RevereTV on YouTube at any time, including all videos from past competitions. Congratulations to this year’s winners and all who participated in this post-pandemic comeback. RevereTV hopes everyone found this weekend as festive and enjoyable as the studio staff does. Last Wednesday, the City of Revere held a Colombian Flag Raising Ceremony at City Hall to commemorate Colombia’s independence. The ceremony aired live on YouTube, Facebook and RTV Gov. It included speeches from Colombian community members from Revere and the area, music and artistic presentations and just a time overall to come together and celebrate. You can view replays of this ceremony on RTV Gov or on YouTube at any time. This week, for the fi rst time, the City of Revere hosted a Peruvian Flag Raising Ceremony. This ceremony aired live on all RevereTV outlets yesterday and featured Peruvian dance performances and refreshments. This ceremony was put on to celebrate Peruvian heritage in Revere and the country’s 201 years of recognition and independence.

But, if one just passed by, they would have no idea of what the back of this beautifully maintained home looked like. Entering along the side of the house through a mass of red/orange impatiens leads to a set of stairs that take one to a spectacular back yard that can only be described as a sanctuary. The entire area is covered with granite slabs instead of grass. A raised area covered by a pergola has furniture for sitting and relaxing and a dining area that has a large table and chairs. There is also a fi re pit surrounded by seating where one can relax and have quiet conversation. All sides of the area have fl owers growing on waist high walls. And the work continues as an outdoor kitchen is in the process of being installed and a charming miniature greenhouse has just been completed but not yet utilized. Frankie Ippolito, the son of the homeowner, informed us that all of the work on the property has been done to allow his mother to be able to entertain the many family members that live in the area comfortably. The Revere Beautification Committee (RBC) commends Mr. Ippolito for setting an example of what a property owner can do to make it beautiful and urges all Revere residents to emulate Frankie Ippolito so that Revere becomes a lovelier place in which to live.
