In recognition of Italian Heritage Month, Joann Cavo Campbell, president of the Italian Heritage Club of the Mohawk Valley in Utica, is planning a wreath-laying ceremony at the Italian Community Oven on October 8th at 11:00 am.

It is to identify and honor Italian immigrants who helped build the Mohawk Valley. The brick oven may have fed not only the Italian immigrants working to build the railroad between Little Falls and Dolgeville but people of other nationalities as well.
