The famous North End Italian Feasts were featured at this week’s Community Chat as part of the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) meeting. Introduced by NEWNC President John Pregmon and moderated by new member, Michael Bonetti, representatives from the four largest North End religious societies presented their plans for the upcoming feast season and other activities throughout the year. Each of the societies have been operating in the North End for a about a century, or more in some cases.
