Police Commissioner Salvatore “Butch” Gennetti honored

Special to The Advocate

  Mayor Gary Christenson was taken by surprise during the 92nd Anniversary Banquet of the St. Rocco Fraternal Association of Malden. The annual event commemorated 92 years of St. Rocco’s Feast. Although the mayor was aware that the event would honor Malden Police Commissioner Salvatore “Butch” Gennetti, he was completely surprised when event host/St. Rocco’s Feast Association of Malden President Joyce Mover announced that he was the second honoree for all of his support over the years of the banquet as well as St. Rocco’s Feast. Christenson was presented with citations as well as a statue of St. Rocco that came from Italy. The Gennetti family was in attendance as were Christenson’s family and friends.

  The banquet raised funds for this year’s annual St. Rocco’s Feast, which brings rich Italian traditions to Malden. This year’s event will take place from August 12-14 in the Edgeworth neighborhood of Malden.
