Malden Honors its Veterans on Memorial Day
Memorial Day 2018 kicked off with a tribute by our students in honor of our Nation's
Veterans on Friday, May 25th at Malden High School. The ceremony included a selection
of patriotic songs and speeches. The event was led by Choral Arts Director Todd
Cole. Special this year was a contingent of Irish Veterans who are members of the
Irish United Nations Veterans Association (IUNVA) who came from Ireland to celebrate
Memorial Day in Malden. The IUNVA supports Irish Veterans who have risked their
lives in global peacekeeping efforts, worked to provide food and shelter to refugees
in countries ravaged by war, and aided in disasters and humanitarian missions.
On the morning of Saturday, May, 26th, Veterans Services Director Kevin Jarvis,
Mayor Gary Christenson, Senator Jason Lewis, State Representative Steve Ultrino
along with members of the City Council and School Committee participated in the
dedication of the CPL Ralph F. Kenty Memorial Square at Savin Street and Fellsmere
Road. Family members and friends gathered to honor CPL Kenty, a former Malden Assistant
City Clerk (1981-1987) who was injured when his helicopter was shot down in Vietnam.
He was the only survivor and made it back home but would later lose his leg and
suffer 53 surgical procedures during his lifetime. Ralph faithfully served his country
and his community and died at age 44 leaving two young daughters and his wife Claire
who died a year later. The girls were raised by their grandparents in Malden. His
daughters, Katie and Jessica spoke about their father and the veterans and true
friends who stepped in while they were growing up and became like family members.
On the cool and rainy morning of Memorial Day, Veterans Services Director Kevin
Jarvis, Mayor Gary Christenson, State Representative Steve Ultrino and members of
the City Council and School Committee turned out for the dedication of Joseph F.
Kinnon Memorial Square at Adams and
West Street. The ceremony was attended by many members of the Kinnon family,
friends and neighbors. Joseph F. Kinnon was born in Malden on September 22,
1917 and was one of seven brothers who served in the military during World War II.
On July 30, 1944, TEC5 Joseph F. Kinnon was killed in action in Normandy, France
while serving as a medic with the 117th Infantry Regiment, Medical Detachment with
the 30th Division, U.S. Army. Joseph F. Kinnon was one of 239 Malden veterans who
died in WWII.
The annual Memorial Day Parade lifted off at the corner of Salem, Ferry, and Main
Streets, and marched north on Main Street to Forest Dale Cemetery. The Irish United
Nations Veterans Association, Veterans groups, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, School Bands,
church groups and many others participated. The Ceremony at Forest Dale Cemetery
opened with the Pledge of Allegiance led by the Scouts. IUNVA member Michael McMananin
sang the Irish National Anthem which was followed by Malden resident and College
of the Holy Cross Sophomore Julia Hall giving a moving rendition of the National
Anthem. This year's Grand Marshal was Arnold W. "Arnie" Hammersley, 86, a lifelong
resident of Malden who enlisted in the U.S. Air Force on January 2, 1951 during
the Korean War and was honorably discharged on December 22, 1954. Following his
military service, Mr. Hammersley joined the Malden Fire Department in 1964 and retired
with the rank of Captain in 1996. He has been married to his wife, Margaret "Midge"
for 61 years. They have three children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Mayor Gary Christenson and Veterans Services Director Kevin Jarvis presented the
United Nations Irish Veterans Association with a citation in honor of their great
work and a framed copy of May 27, 1776 document that contains the "Instructions
of the Inhabitants of Malden, Massachusetts to their Representatives in Congress."
As the parade wound its way back to the corner of Ferry, Salem and Main, there was
a brief pause as a wreath was laid at the WWI and WWII Memorials in honor of Malden
High School students who served in those wars. The Irish American Club hosted the
IUNVA and their families for a luncheon after the parade.

Great Happenings in our Schools!
Generation Citizen Classes 2018
Superintendent of Schools John Oteri and Mayor Gary Christenson visited Ms. Rebecca
Corcoran's History class at Malden High School to learn about her students'
Generation Citizen Project. Also attending were Malden's Communications Director
Ron Cochran and Human Services Director Karen Hayes. Generation Citizen is a nationally-recognized
organization whose goal is to empower young people through the education system.
The students' Project has been to explore ways to help residents of various cultures
navigate their way to vital services and assistance despite potential language barriers.
Malden is home to the most culturally diverse public high school in Massachusetts
and in the top 10 nationally in that category, with an estimated 70 native languages
spoken. Ron Cochran, who manages the City's website, explained how the entire website
is accessible in a variety of languages including Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole,
Portuguese and Spanish. Additionally, flyers and other materials are made available
in multiple languages and the City offers translation services for residents seeking
municipal services.
Superintendent Oteri explained that Malden Public Schools follow an accessible path
as most handouts and messages sent district-wide to parents are also available in
different languages and uses a professional translation service to assist parents
when needed. The Mayor and Superintendent took questions from the class and heard
students' opinions on the City's translation initiatives and suggested adjustments.
Several great points were raised including ways that parents may improve their command
of English through classes or other means. The Superintendent noted that his staff
has already initiated English classes for parents of Malden Public School students
this year through the Title One program and that there has been a great response.
Mayor Christenson praised the class for their work on the Generation Citizen project
and encouraged them to continue to use City and school officials as a resource in
pursuing their project goals in the future.
Senior Internships Exhibit
The Malden High School Senior Internship Exhibit, organized by Beth Horowitz, is
a yearly event that officially ends the seniors' internship requirements. Student
interns are required to complete a project detailing their internship duties, responsibilities
and what they learned from the experience. Students also have to write a paper describing
their experiences. Seniors interned in a variety of places including area businesses,

Longtime Malden Barber Retires
Mayor Gary Christenson recently attended a farewell reception in honor of Anthony

as the owner of Tony's Barber Shop for more than 55 years. A staple in the community
located at 380 Salem Street, Tony's great customer service extended beyond the
shop as he often travelled to the homes of his longtime customers who were unable
to come to him due to age or health issues. Family and friends celebrated and honored
Tony's lifelong career on the very day he turned the keys over to the new owner,
coincidentally another Tony!
