Utah is More Than Donny and Marie and Mormons
By Susan Escalante, Director of Public Relations, Federal Financial Group LLC
Last month I was looking for a place to have lunch in Little Italy in Manhattan. As my husband and I walked around trying to find someplace that looked like they had authentic recipes, there were men standing at the front of several establishments trying to invite us to have lunch at their restaurant.
One gentleman asked where we were from and I replied “Utah”. With a classic Brooklyn accent, he said “Oh, Donny and Marie and the Mormons!” We smiled and agreed politely.
If only the time was right to have shared with him the Utah we know, with Bryce Canyon, Zion’s National Park, hiking, fishing, skiing, the Heber Train, the Uintas and so much more. Here are a few photos that I would have liked to share:
And yes, Utah has more Osmonds than Donny & Marie! We rode home on a plane with this Osmond, who is also a singer:
And I just became connected today on LinkedIn with this Osmond – Nathan Osmond. Both Nathan and David are sons of Alan and Suzanne Osmond.
Draper, Utah is also the home of Federal Financial Group LLC headquarters.
So, yes, Mr. New York Italian man, Utah has a lot more to it than Donny, Marie and some Mormons.
But, thank you for asking!
