​Oneida County Clerk Sandra J. DePerno will host a naturalization ceremony Nov. 3 at 10:30 a.m. at Mohawk Valley Community College’s Utica campus in the Schafer Theater.

Officials will formally welcome the new citizens to the county and present them with their certificates of naturalization. The candidates for citizenship are from Rome, Utica and surrounding areas.  

State Supreme Court Justice Bernadette T. Clark will officiate, and the keynote speaker will be MVCC President Randall J. VanWagoner.

The county clerk’s office has been naturalizing citizens since 1807 and currently holds four ceremonies a year.
