Opening Nov. 29 and on exhibit through June 2015 in the Gorman Galley of the Oneida Community Mansion House, “The Historic Sales Office of Oneida, Ltd.” honors an industrial building that would feel at home on an Ivy League campus.

The noble 1926 edifice was created as a visual monument to the ideals of Oneida Community, Ltd., a company dedicated to the highest quality in both silverware and worker relations. Designed in the English Gothic manner by Syracuse architect Albert Brockway, it also happened to be “the most beautiful building of its kind in the country,” according to the company’s president. One home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880), today the 93,000 square foot brick building houses a museum, residential apartments, overnight lodging, Kenwood and Vine restaurant, and banquet and meeting space. Guided tours are available Wed. through Sat., 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and Sun. at 2 p.m. for a nominal fee. Self-guided and On-Cell tours may be taken during regular business hours.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

North Utica Neighborhood Meetings

North Utica Senior Center

Meeting which is open to the public to discuss issues of concern to the residents of the city of Utica with emphasis on those issues affecting North Utica residents. City officials and representatives of various departments, i.e. Public Safety, Works, School , elected officials etc. are invited to speak on a variety of topics and to answer questions. ** I would like to see these meetings announced at some point during the 5:00 PM news broadcast on the last Monday of each month so that more people are aware that a meeting will be taking place. Presently someone calls to remind only those individuals who have attended previous meetings. An announcement on TV would be a public service especially for those folks who do not go online or even own a computer.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

Unitarian Universalist Church of Utica, 10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Planning For a Lifetime of Income in Retirement Are you going to be financially prepared to retire at a time that is in line with your goals, objectives and dreams? Perhaps more importantly, is there any way to determine that even with enough income the day that you retire, will your income sustain your quality of life throughout your retirement? Raymond Acosta, a Member Financial Advisor with AmeriCU will provide us with some valuable insights. He will show us that when determining your “readiness” for your retirement, your entire planning process boils down to a simple question: Will you outlive your retirement assets or will your retirement assets outlive you? Ray will help us determine how much we will need to retire, how to sustain our quality of life throughout retirement, and the importance of tuning out the “noise” of the 24 hour news cycle. Annual Membership: $20 for Individual - $30 for Family Dinner: $15 for members and $19 nonmembers Menu: Spiced lentils w/flat bread, cucumber yogurt sauce & garden salad Dinner is catered by Jim Cox of the Chowder House of New York Mills For Reservations: Call or text by 7pm Sunday January 11th at 507-0611 or email at lifelongwellnesscny@gmail.com with name, number attending, and phone number.

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.
