SHERIFF TOMPKINS “REACHES OUT” TO SENIORS IN REVERE

Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins (4th from left) attended a senior open house event in Revere with (L to R) Revere City Councilor John R. Correggio, Linda Rosa, Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, Lona Frongillo, and Revere City Council President Ira Novoselsky.


Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins recently attended a senior open house event held at the Rossetti–Cowan Senior Center in Revere.

The event, which was sponsored by the Rossetti–Cowan Senior Center and Mayor Dan Rizzo, is one of many that the center is hosting as a part of their "Reaching Out To You" open house series. The open houses will be, according to organizers, "a chance for residents to catch up with former friends and acquaintances, as well as meeting and making new ones." Participants and attendees will also get to meet the dedicated staff working at the Rossetti–Cowan Senior Center and take part in a survey that will ultimately create a roadmap that will help to serve the needs of Revere’s senior population more appropriately.

Present at the open–house along with Sheriff Tompkins were a number of elected officials and political candidates, including Middlesex County Sheriff and U.S. Congressional candidate Peter Koutoujian, City Councilors At–Large John R. Correggio and Tony Zambuto, and several individuals seeking election to the Revere School Committee. The event included raffle drawings, snacks, dancing and nearly one–hundred smiling seniors.

Sheriff Tompkins mingled with the seniors at the event, many of whom were eager to speak with him and pose for pictures.

"I always enjoy spending time with our neighbors in Revere and this was a great occasion to come and visit, " said Sheriff Tompkins. "I want to thank Mayor Rizzo and the members of the Rossetti–Cowan Senior Center for being such great hosts and I look forward to continuing our outreach efforts to the seniors of Suffolk County."

The next "Reaching Out To You" senior open house event at the Rosetti–Cowan Senior Center (located at 25 Winthrop Avenue in Revere) will be held on Thursday, October 24th at 2pm.

For more information about future events at the Rosetti–Cowan Senior Center please contact Steve Fielding, Assistant Director of the Revere Senior Center at: (781) 286–8156.
