Moms and Dads, sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews, grandma and granddad, all coming together this Thanksgiving. Finally!! What a long, strange trip it’s been. (Well said, Jerry Garcia!)
As Mohawk Valley families gather this year, we’re reminded of a post we published on our blog a few years ago. The national news at the time was as disheartening and controversial as it is today. So we suggested that families talk about something different. Something outside of “the daily, diabolical machinations of Washington, DC.”
The idea was that we would offer you a list of prompts that you could use to start fun conversations. Many are homegrown, about the Utica area. So forget the politics, let’s talk Mohawk Valley!
Mohawk Valley Table Topics for Thanksgiving 2021
- The Utica Comets just broke the AHL all-time record for consecutive wins to start the season. Are you interested in going to a game this year? Even if you’re not a hockey fan?
- Wolfspeed (formerly Cree) has built a new plant in Marcy. They make Silicon Carbide wafers for electric cars. Do you see the Mohawk Valley on the verge of an economic renaissance?
