Description:
 Author Jim Farfaglia will discuss his book "Nestle In Fulton New York: How Sweet It Was". The chocolate company once employed 1500 workers and is the birthplace of the Nestle Crunch bar. Why did the swiss candy manufacturer decide to put a plant in Fulton in 1898?

In 2003 the company shut it's doors. Other CNY manufacturers have also severely cut back or closed including: Carrier, General Electric, General Motors, Chrysler, Will and Baumer Candles, P&C Grocery, and the Miller Brewing Company.
The move away from manufacturing jobs has greatly changed the greater Syracuse area. How has this impacted our lives and changed our community identity? Bring your thoughts!

This program is a "American Creed: Community Conversations" program which invites audiences to discuss and consider what America's ideals and identity ought to be. Look for additional programs under the American Creed: Community Conversations title.
