REVERE — Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo and other officials joined Mayor Brian Arrigo to celebrate 40 years of sweet treats at the iconic Banana Boat ice cream shop on Revere Street.

Sisters Avri and Amora Schena, who co-own the shop, were presented with a citation and an award to celebrate the success of their long-standing business in the city.

More than three dozen patrons chowed down on cake and Italian cookies while commemorating the milestone.
