This past Tuesday, the Somerville Council on Aging along with our city’s seniors honored Police Officer Maryanne Manfra at luncheon party in her honor.
The seniors expressed their appreciation to Officer Maryanne Manfra who devotes her heart and soul to the community and who always has their backs.
“Maryanne, a Somerville Police Officer for over 20 years, is being honored for the care and compassion she gives to the most vulnerable members of our community. She exemplifies qualities we can all aspire to, offering a hand up and never turning away from people in need” said Mark Alston-Follansbee, Former Executive Director of the Somerville Homeless Coalition as he was describing Officer Manfra as she was honored back in 2014 as she was also honored back then as well by the Somerville Homeless Coalition where Officer Manfra was the recipient of the 6th Annual Tina DeLellis recognition award.
