The St. Lawrence County Historical Association’s next Brown Bag Lunch Series has been set for Thursday, January 17th at noon in Canton, NY, and will look at the St. Lawrence Seaway in the 1950s and the flooding of Waddington.
Russell Strait will be sharing and discussing videos of Waddington before it changed forever, and of the construction of the Seaway.
Brown Bag Lunches are free and open to the public. Bring your own lunch and enjoy a beverage and dessert provided by SLCHA.
The Brown Bag Lunch Series is a popular lunch time lecture series dedicated to the memory of Patricia Harrington Carson, who founded the series during her 24 years as a Trustee of the St. Lawrence County Historical Association. Pat Carson was active on numerous SLCHA Committees, and was an article writer and an issue editor of the SLCHA’s history journal, The Quarterly.
The St. Lawrence County Historical Association is located at 3 E. Main Street, Canton. Parking is available behind the SLCHA, next to the museum’s main entrance.
