Everett native showcases their sand sculpture at Revere Beach!

Deb Barrett-Cutulle, Everett native has a background in illustration, which has transferred nicely to sculpting in sand.

Before she begins a sculpture she draws it out. Then it is on to her sandboxes, one in her backyard and one tabletop version. The key is in the sculpture's eye. 
"Most sculptors have an artistic background, but some people just fall into it." Cutulle tells the Everett Independent. 

After 2 years, USS Constitution floats on its own

Visitors to Charlestown Navy Yard caught a rare sight on Sunday, as the USS Constitution — the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world — prepared to return to Boston Harbor after a 26-month restoration project.

The event was cause for celebration throughout the day and into the evening as crowds thronged the Navy Yard, where booths offered family-friendly activities such as knot tying, “sail mail,” and crafts. Children made miniature ships from corks and rubber bands, with small sheets of foam for sails.

Meadow Park is now open

On Friday, June 9th, Mayor Carlo DeMaria announced that Private John Kearins Playground, also known as Meadows Park is now open to the public. The playground was totally funded by the DeMaria’s administration’s Capital Improvement Plan.

The renovation project included ADA accessible equipment, energy efficient lighting, checker tables, picnic tables, equipment for children up to the age of 12, and a water saving splash pad. The most drastic improvement is the overall beautification of the park, which includes formalized entrance areas, pergolas, ornamental fencing, and decorative lampposts.
