By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Riveting stories of fascinating lives were on display Thursday at the Parkway Senior Center in Utica.

A video presentation telling the stories of three senior citizens who live in Oneida County put a face to some of the people who live in the region.

"Everyone has a Story: Stories of Oneida County Seniors" premiered at the Parkway Senior Center in the City of Utica Thursday morning. The presentation is a collection of stories about local stories and each tale is unique, and certainly not run of the mill. They tell tales of the character of the people who make up the Mohawk Valley.

"It's important because one of the "isms" that still remains in our society is ageism, and we forget what they have to offer," said Dr. Kathleen Bishop of the Oneida County Office for the Aging.
