Veteran's Open House:  December 1

Mayor Setti Warren invites veterans to the monthly Veterans Service Center Open House from 5:30-7:30 p.m., on Tuesday, December 1, which will be held at the Veterans Service Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville.

The featured speaker will be Tony Massarotti, a highly-regarded and well known sportswriter and sports broadcaster in Massachusetts.  For more than fifteen years, Tony has covered the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtics as a columnist and reporter for the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe and Tony is currently the co-host of Felger and Massarotti, a sports talk program broadcast on 98.5 The Sports Hub on WBZ FM. 

Tony has interviewed all the top athletes on Boston’s professional sports teams and it should be a fun evening listening to his insights and hearing his stories.  During the event, refreshments will be provided, we will hold a free raffle, and service providers will be present, including representatives from the VA and the Veterans Upward Bound Program.
