Seneca Falls, NY – Twenty candidates will state the oath of citizenship and be presented certificates by the U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This is one of many naturalization ceremonies taking place in national parks during Citizenship Week under a partnership between the National Park Service and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
“How fitting to take the oath of citizenship here at Women’s Rights National Historical Park,” stated Noemi Ghazala, Superintendent of Women’s Rights National Historical Park. “National Parks are a uniquely American idea. It is an honor to welcome these new citizens here at Women’s Rights National Historical Park.”
The ceremony will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 18th, at the Wesleyan Chapel in Women’s Rights National Park. Parking is available in the park’s parking lot and on the street. The Honorable Marian W. Payson will convene a special session of the U. S. District Court of the Western District of New York in the Wesleyan Chapel, and she will administer the oath of citizenship in the naturalization ceremony.
